The Headmaster's Message 

Headmaster Peter W. Bragdon and the Honorable Elizabeth Dole at 

The red stakes in the ground seem placid 
enough; the large earth-moving equipment 
poised at their perimeter does seem 
portentous; the new road east of Evans 
Cottage heading into the Murphy-Frost Arena 
and the Lower Playing Fields suggests dramatic 

The transfer of dreams to specific plans, of plans 
to action, is apparent in this green space. The 
determination to again be a national boarding 
school will soon result in a dormitory for two 
faculty families and twenty-four students. 

We live the results of past dreams for Governor 
Dummer and now our present dreams are entering 
the area of fact. Yeats wrote to his son, "Only for 
his dreams is a man responsible - his actions are 
what he must do." The dreams of this time have 
been clear: now is a time of action, action we must 
do to insure a sound future for this special place. 

At Commencement our speaker Elizabeth Dole 
commented, "GDA has not only survived over the 
past 225 years. It has not only endured. It has 
prevailed over more than two centuries in its 
service to Massachusetts, to New England and to 
America. During that span of time GDA has 
remained steadfast to its ingrained sense of duty 
and obligation." 

And now we must go on. The silver shovel 
which launched our new dormitory at Reunion, 
just a week after Commencement, reflects the pace 
of our determination.

225th Commencement 

Elizabeth Dole challenges students to make a positive difference 



Headmaster Bragdon and Morse 
Flag winner Deana Giamette. 

|he Honorable Elizabeth Dole, 
former U.S. Secretary of 
Transportation, encouraged 
Governor Dummer Academy's 
graduates, on Commencement Day, to 
use their education and privileges to 
help other people. 

"Ultimately, that is why you are here," 
she said. "It is why your parents worked 
to give you access to the educational 
excellence you have obtained here. Mak- 
ing a positive difference for others is an 
idea worth dedicating your life and ca- 
reer to." 

It was a warm, sparkling June 11 for 
the ceremony in front of the Mansion 
House. Students, parents, faculty, and 
friends filled more than 1,000 seats and 
overflowed onto the lawn and onto the 
steps of Commons and Parsons School- 

The 99 graduates had been joined by 
Mrs. Dole earlier that morning at the 
traditional Senior Breakfast hosted by 
Headmaster Peter and Dottie Bragdon in 
the Mansion House. Then, in caps and 
gowns and with red roses and bouton- 
nieres, they collected in front of the 
Chapel for their final march. They were 
led up an aisle of underclassmen toward 
the ceremony by Morse Flag winner 
Deana Giamette and Academy Prize 
winner Kara Moheban. As they made 
the final turn to their seats, they sent 
skyward 99 crimson and white balloons. 

As the ceremony began, the Headmas- 
ter thanked Mrs. Dole for attracting a 
double row of trustees to the speaker's 
platform, and he and Trustee president 
Carl A. Pescosolido, Jr. '55, proceeded to 
present academic awards, including the 
Thorndike Hilton Cup to top-ranked 
scholar Anne L. Cole. 

Mrs. Dole began her address in the 
historic spirit of the 225th commence- 

"It is indeed humbling to reflect on the 
generations of truly outstanding Ameri- 
cans - many who founded this nation 
and served in Congress - who have ema- 
nated from the Little Red Schoolhouse. 

"Each of us in our own way," said the 
woman who has served in the federal 
government under every president from 

Lyndon Johnson to Ronald Reagan, "is 
called to service. Our Constitution does 
not merely grant rights to the people, it 
reminds us of our responsibilities to each 

"I hope you will consider public serv- 
ice at some point in your lives. For while 
you may not get rich, you will enrich the 
lives of millions of your countrymen. 
You will make a difference - a positive 

"As a nation, we need inventive think- 
ers to guide our economy, protect our 
environment, secure our rights and es- 
tablish our place in the world. But most 
of all, we need individuals - committed 
men and women - for whom conscience 
is the North Star by which they guide 
their steps, and those of the nation they 

Commencement speaker Elizabeth 

Baccalaureate speaker Edward J. 
Khantzian, M.D. 

The graduates then received their di- 
plomas from Messrs. Bragdon and Pesco- 
solido and, following the benediction, 
recessed to the milestone before making 
the traditional charge over the stone 

Graduation ceremonies actually began 
Thursday afternoon with the Baccalau- 
reate Service in Moseley Chapel. The 
seniors had chosen three speakers: a stu- 
dent, Christian Zabriskie '88; a faculty 
member, history master Elizabeth Ruhl; 
and a parent, Dr. Edward J. Khantzian, 
father of John '88. 

Dr. Khantzian, a psychiatrist who spe- 
cializes in the problems of alcoholism 
and addiction, offered the seniors "a pre- 
scription for sanity and well-being." 

He warned them of the many "danger- 
ous involvements and attachments that 
can become addictive and do us in. They 
can occur in relation to work, 
relationships, ambition, success, power. 
If overdone, they can all threaten our 
sanity and well-being. 

"You have already been provided anti- 
dotes to these life dangers during your 
four years at Governor Dummer...a very 
important balance between academic 
performance and the development of 
each of you as total human beings." 

And so, he offered his prescription: 
"to love, to work and to play." But, he 
added, "none of these is done best alone. 
Individual goals, ambition and achieve- 
ment have little meaning unless you 
make them work in the context of com- 
munity - whether it be family, educa- 
tion, religion, government, professional 
or business life." 

Ms. Ruhl told the seniors she 
wouldn't mislead them by promising 
only success. However, she said, they 
would gain confidence through failure as 
well as success. She recalled being dis- 
traught when she was not chosen to 
speak at her own high school com- 
mencement. "But you have given me 
that opportunity today," she said. 

"We have made a wonderful, intricate 
multicolored safety net for each other," 
Zabriskie told his classmates. "Each in 
our own time has balanced precariously 
on the emotional high wire above it. 

Academy Prize winner Kara Moheban and Morse Flag winner Deana 
Giamette lead the class of '88 to commencement. 

We've also fallen. I know I have. But the 
fall never seemed so bad... not with so 
many people to catch you." 

He challenged his classmates to"build 
new safety nets" as they go out into the 
world. "Jesus said, 'You are the light of 
the world, do not hide your light under 
a bushel.' Open yourselves up to people. 
Support others and give them the 
chance to support you. Love often and 
with all your heart. Hate as little as pos- 
sible. Reach out to people who may not 
reach back. And never, ever raise your 
defenses too high, because walls that are 
too thick become prisons." 

Traditional high tea followed in the 
great tent in the Quadrangle until the 6 
o'clock tolling of the schoolhouse bell 
signalled the ceremony at the flag pole. 

The Headmaster there presented the 
Morse Flag, which had flown over the 
Academy for the past year, to the senior 
"whose record in all respects meets the 

highest approval of the faculty... Deana 
Giamette of Topsfield. 

"Wherever she has surfaced over four 
years, she has exhibited tenacity, enthu- 
siasm and effectiveness," Mr. Bragdon 
said. "She has earned Highest Honors 
while taking accelerated courses, she has 
excelled in varsity volleyball, hockey 
and tennis. She founded the Peer Lead- 
ership Program through which seniors 
are trained to guide freshmen, and her 
last project was a student-directed pro- 
gram to keep the campus clean." 

The students and guests then ad- 
journed to Alumni Gymnasium for the 
bulk of the awards and the farewells of 
the three Ambrose speakers - toastmas- 
ter Chris Zabriskie, Jenny Reynolds, and 
Kursten Burns. 

The names of all award-winners and of 
the colleges where they are now studying

nance crew, show off the reunion cake. Ben Pearson '44 approves. 


Balloons signalling the 225th An- 
niversary flew from every post 
and railing, and a giant yellow 
and white tent on the Quad- 
rangle added an air of celebration to 
Governor Dummer's biggest reunion 
weekend yet, June 17-19. 

More than 400 alumni/ae from reun- 
ion classes and in-between classes, their 
families, friends and others, filled the 
campus for the weekend. More alum- 
ni/ae are bringing their children - in- 
fants, toddlers and teenagers - each year. 

The 10th Reunion class (1978) regis- 
tered 39 members present, followed by 
the 20th (1968) with 27, the 15th (1973) 
with 26, the 25th (1963) with 21, and the 
50th Reunion (1938) with 20. There 
were 23 Old Guard alumni as well. 

Some eager alumni even arrived Fri- 
day morning, hours ahead of schedule, 
and by evening, alumni and their fami- 
lies had settled into nearly 80 rooms in 
Perkins, Cottage, Phillips, Peirce, and 
Eames dormitories. 

Fran and Buster Navins entertained 32 
guests at a 50th Reunion Dinner at their 
home on Friday night, while Peter and 
Dottie Bragdon hosted 34 at the 25th 

Dinner in the Mansion House. 

Clouds lifted for the 8th annual Satur- 
day morning road race. The 4.75-mile 
event was won by Tom Bell '73 in 31:05, 
letting stand Robert Kruger '77's record 
24:21 set on Alumni Sports Day June 5. 
Tom was followed by GDA distance 
coach and race organizer David Abu- 
samra in 31:49. 

Widge Thomas '43, back for his 45th 
reunion, took 10th in a respectable 
43:40; the 25th Reunion class dominated 
overall. Other finishers were GDA 
Spanish master Alec White, third in 
32:40; Charlie Cashin '84, fourth in 
34:21; Carson Taylor '63, fifth in 35:31; 
Sandy Colby, father of Alexis '91, sixth 
in 35:53; Susan Gummey, wife of Frank 
'63, seventh in 39:25; Bill Sloan '63, 
eighth in 40:23; and Lisa Colby, sister of 
Alexis '91 and daughter of Sandy, 
above, ninth in 42:58. There was a sis- 
ter-brother tie for 1 1th - Melissa '86 and 
Marc Dyer '87 in 48: 15. 

Fruit pies went to all race finishers. 

Ground-breaking for the new dormito- 
ry followed the race (a complete report 
will appear in a forthcoming newsletter), 
then the reunion classes gathered be- 
hind their respective banners for a 
Grand March down Middle Road to the 
Annual Meeting of Alumni in the tent. 

Hayden is Alumnus of Year 

Alumni president Peter Sherin pre- 
sented the Alumnus Award- 1988 to 
Harvey Hayden of '58. Hayden is an 
active class agent, and he returns to 
campus regularly as Number 1 goalie for 
the alumni/varsity hockey game or as 
lead-off batter on the alumni baseball 
team. A pilot for Delta Airlines, he lives 
in Stratham, New Hampshire. 

Tim Greene, Annual Fund chairman 
for the Trustees, presented the Alumni 
Fund participation awards, of which the 
10th Reunion Class of 1978 won a trio. 
Head agent Jamie Bougas and associate 
agents Tom Driscoll and Peter Feith ac- 
cepted the Reunion Class Bowl for high- 
est participation in the Alumni Fund 
(62%), the Arthur W. Sager Bowl for the 
class of the 10 most recent with the high- 
est dollar total ($3,194), and the Howard 
J. Navins Bowl for the class of the 10

Picnic lunch, campus tours, challenge 
Softball games and Glee Club rehearsal 
(well attended by spectators) filled the 
afternoon until the piece de resistance -

(for 420!) - and dancing under the tent. 

Sunday morning's chapel service, fea- 
turing the Alumni Glee Club, was once 
again the emotional peak of the week- 
end. Newly ordained pastor Geoffrey C. 
Gwynne '78 (son of Sam Gwynne '47) 
gave the invocation, welcome, and reun- 
ion reflections and shared the pulpit 
with Headmaster Peter W. Bragdon. 

The Glee Club, under the leadership 
of masters emeriti Arthur Sager and Ben 
Stone, sang forth with "Prayer of 
Thanksgiving," "Amazing Grace," and 
"Landsighting" (solo by Alan Chase 
'65). Alan Bullwinkle '38 came all the 
way from London to solo in Gilbert & 
Sullivan's "Model Major General," and 
Denis Golden '62 soloed in "The Battle 
Hymn of the Republic." 

It was another reunion to remember,

On the campaign trail 

Covering the presidential candidate 

By Mark Starr '65 

As Boston Inireau chief for 
Newsweek Magazine, I have 
been covering Michael Du- 
kakis since my arrival in Bos- 
ton in September of 1985. But for the 
past six months, since the New Hamp- 
shire primary, I have been covering his 
presidential campaign full-time. Here is a 
sampling of the glamour and glory of 
four days on the campaign trail. 

Atlanta, Thursday, July 21: 

This is the most exciting day of Mi- 
chael Dukakis' life, his coronation as the 
Democratic nominee for president. For 
me, it is just another day in this city's 
incredible swelter. In fact, it is a rather 
easy day. My assignment is "the body" - 
to stick with Dukakis wherever he goes. 
He's holed up in his $l,100-a-day suite 
working on his speech. So I have time to 
go to a Newsweek lunch with Tennessee 
Senator Al Gore and to appear on one 
TV show (Chicago) and four radio 
shows (Kansas City, Detroit, Milwaukee 
and Pittsburgh) discussing the candidate 
I have come to know so well. 

I also have time, along with two col- 
leagues, to indulge in our one nice din- 
ner of the week. Unfortunately, we in- 
dulge a little too long. By the time the 
strolling violin and accordion players 
have cleared away and we have sipped 
our last glass of champagne, we are too 
late to get into the Omni where Dukakis 
will give his speech. We are locked out 
by the fire marshalls who declare the 
place filled to capacity. We try to reason 
with the police to no avail. Nor is my 
friend Roger any more successful with 
his one-man chant of "the whole world 
is watching." Still, despite being late, we 
are early. We have about two hours to 
figure a way into the hall before the 
governor is scheduled to speak. 

Our best hope is to go back to my and 
the governor's hotel. Dukakis' motor- 
cade will be leaving from there and a 
press pool - a small delegation selected 
from the larger traveling press corps - 
will accompany the governor. Our mis- 
sion now is simple: to convince the gov- 
ernor's advance man to expand the pool 

and let us hitch a ride. We wend our way 
through the Secret Service maze and 
find the governor's man. We beg, we 
plead. He says no. He just turned down 
two high-ranking Massachusetts poli- 
ticians. We beg, we plead, we tell him 
our very livelihoods are at stake. He 
makes us squirm some more - and re- 
lents. We will ride to the Omni in total 
discomfort, squashed on the floor of the 
press van. 

Only the most cynical reporter would 
deny there was some excitement as Du- 
kakis charged to the podium, the strains 
of Neil Diamond's "Coming to Ameri- 
ca" blasting through the jam-packed are- 
na. I charged toward my seat, where I 
told my boss, "Sorry I'm late, but I de- 
cided to come with the governor." 

On The Road (Georgia, Texas, 
California), Friday, July 22: 

I got almost five hours of sleep, one 
more than the governor and a couple 
more than the average reporter. That's 
because I skipped the all-night parties 
that concluded the convention. Before 
hitting the road, Dukakis has decided to 
make one last gesture of unification and 
visit the Jackson delegates. The Dukakis 
campaign pencils in 20 minutes for the 
surprise stop. They're not used to Jesse. 
He speaks for more than 50 minutes be- 
fore introducing Dukakis and Bentsen. 

That hour delay has some repercus- 
sions by the time we hit the Rio Grande 
Valley, Bentsen's home turf. The crowd 
at the airport in McAllen has been wait- 
ing a couple of hours in more than 100- 
degree heat, and more than two dozen 
have required medical attention. We 
step off the plane and it's like breathing 
fire. After the rally, Dukakis holds his 
first post-convention press conference. I 
ask him how come, when he makes such 
a point of how he hates negative cam- 
paigning, he presided over this conven- 
tion where his whole party made person- 
al attacks and mocked George Bush. He 
dismisses me with an offhand "conven- 
tions tend to be contentious." 

Then the really bad news. Because 
we're so late., they've canceled the press' 
filing time - those precious minutes when 
we plug our computers into the phones

and transmit our stories. Of course, the 
Dukakis campaign is equally anxious to 
have us file. Without our stories, there is 
no campaign as far as the country is 
concerned. They didn't hold the press 
conference just to talk to the people of 
McAllen, Texas. They promise us plenty 
of filing time after the Houston rally. 

Unfortunately, nothing is going right 
this day. In Houston, as the press bus 
pulls out to join the motorcade back to 
the airport and filing time, the driver 
stops and opens the door for a photogra- 
pher who lagged. This is a no-no. We 
lose the motorcade and find ourselves 
stuck in Houston rush-hour traffic. By 
the time we finally get to the airport, we 
are late and desperate and locals are 
treated to the sight of reporters charging 
off the bus, computers in hand, racing to 
the 40 phone lines installed especially for 
us. Worse news awaits us when we get 
on the plane. NO food has arrived. As 
the press chants "no food-no fly," a ribs 
truck pulls up on the tarmac and deliv- 
ers the goodies. The crisis is averted. We 
end the day - 18 hours after it began - in 


Stockton, California. Most of us want 
simply to dive into bed, but our luggage 
doesn't show up for almost two hours. 

On the Road (California, North 
Dakota, Missouri), Saturday, 
July 23 

It is my wife's birthday and this is the 
third straight year I've missed it. I can 
only hope the gifts I left behind are good 
choices. These campaigns are very hard 
on marriages and families, and that is a 
constant subject of discussion on the 
trail. Most of the men are married. Al- 
most all the women - and there are far 
fewer of them - are younger and single. 
My wife and I have an 18-month-old 
daughter, and she has made a lot of 
sacrifices and borne an extraordinary 
burden so that I can cover this story. 

At the Modesto rally, I stand with 
Dukakis' campaign chairman Paul 
Brountas. I mention that some of us 
have been traveling with the Duke a 
long time (my first trip with him was to 
Baton Rouge, some 16 months before), 
and I thought it strange that coming off 
his Atlanta triumph he hadn't bothered 
to come back on the plane and say hello 
to us. (We share the same plane, but 
there are unofficial ground rules. We 
leave him alone in front, and we own 
the back of the plane. We don't inter- 
rupt his work, and he lets us have our 
limbo contests in the back aisles.) That 
message sinks in. On our next leg (I'm 
convinced the first-ever Stockton, Cali- 
fornia to Minot, North Dakota flight), 
Dukakis comes back. When he stops to 
say hello to me, I get him to write birth- 
day greetings to my wife. He does and 
adds a footnote telling her to have me 
take her out to the most expensive res- 
taurant in Boston. That is fairly funny 
coming from the notoriously frugal Du- 
kakis. In fact, his wife took him to that 
very same restaurant for their anniver- 
sary, but made sure he had a menu with- 
out the prices. Anyway, maybe the 
birthday greetings will be worth some- 
thing some day. 

The state fair in Minot looks like fun, 
but we have no time to enjoy it. As soon 
as he finishes his speech, we rush off to 
file. At this point early Saturday eve- 
ning, Newsweek's final deadline is ap- 

proaching. I don't have anything more 
to file; instead I need to see our conven- 
tion stories in case I have any correc- 
tions to make. New York has sent them 
to my computer mailbox, and I retrieve 
them, read them and send my okay to 
New York in the half hour they give us. 
The lucky photographers and TV crews 
who don't have to work while we file get 
to take in the women's wrestling 
matches. One TV crew took some foot- 
age and shared it with us later. In fact, 
that night in St. Louis we took over the 
hotel bar and the NBC crew showed the 
videotape it has been making about life 
on the campaign trail. We thought it was 
hysterical, but we noticed a lot of other 
patrons calling for their checks. Even 
with that loss of business, the bar did all 
right. Nothing like having 60 people 
pour into your bar at 1 1 p.m. on a Satur- 
day night with no place else to go, ex- 
pense accounts and a mighty thirst. 

On the Road (Missouri, home), 
Sunday, July 24: 

Finally, some good news. With the 
magazine closed for the week, I'm told I 
can skip the last stop in Erie, Pennsylva- 
nia, and head directly home. I check my 
handy flight guide (no reporter on the 
campaign trail is without one), pause 
only for a courtesy call to my in-laws in 
St. Louis and race for the airport. I stop 
and pick up a stuffed Cookie Monster 
for my daughter and make it home by 4 

Home, sweet home. My birthday gifts 
were a hit (at least the thoughtfulness of 
them was a hit - my wife returned every- 
thing except the candy). Dukakis is off 
the road for three more days. Then it 
will be Newark, Flint, Michigan, Mil- 
waukee, Springfield, Illinois, Toledo, 
Louisville, and Raleigh, North Carolina, 
in three fun-filled days. Ah the glamour. 
Ah the glory, endit. 

About the author 


Mark Starr in '64. 

Mark Starr arrived back in Boston, 
where he was born, in September of 
1986, as bureau chief for Newsweek. He 
has, as he relates, been covering Michael 
Dukakis ever since. For four years pre- 
vious, he had been a general editor at 
Newsweek, covering a wide variety of 
stories from the bombing of the MOVE 
headquarters in Philadelphia to analysis 
of President Reagan's leadership qual- 
ities. He also did a profile of "Washing- 
ton's power couple," Robert and Eliza- 

beth Dole, and shared a Women in 
Communications Clarion Award for an 
October 1983 story, "The CIA Reborn." 
During the 1984 presidential campaign, 
he wrote about the Senate and Congres- 
sional races and contributed to News- 
week's Election Extra issue, published 36 
hours after the polls closed. 

A member of the Governor staff and 
Debating and Drama Clubs at GDA, 
Mark was also a cheerleader and tennis 
MVP. "His graceful athletic form," it 
says next to his photo in the yearbook, 
"graced both tennis court and Lang 

He received a masters degree in jour- 
nalism from Stanford University in 
1970, and worked at several newspapers 
before joining Newsweek. Among them 
were the San Jose Mercury-News, the Ro- 
chester Democrat and Chronicle, the Wall 
Street journal, and most recently, the 
Chicago Tribune, for whom he covered 
Central America and reported on the 
Mideast and Israel. 

He no longer has time to play tennis,

John Carroll '61 

* , -«r 

Running for "re-agriculturalizcttion of Vermont' 

John Carroll '61 is running for state 
Senate in his adopted state of Ver- 
mont, and he got everyone's atten- 
tion right off the bat by predicting 
that the "small Vermont dairy farm 
is doomed." 

"Economic realities" call for a new ap- 
proach to Vermont farming, he says, 
and he has one: he proposes that the 
state abandon a milk subsidy program 
enacted earlier this year to assist small 
farmers, and instead help small farmers 
find more profitable ways to use their 
land (by raising sheep or pork or flowers 
for city markets) or find new owners for 
those who want to get out of farming 
altogether. He wants to keep land in 
agriculture, not just preserve it for aes- 

The problem, Carroll says, is central 
to what's going on in Vermont and in 
other agricultural states: "With lower 
milk prices and rising costs, the small 
dairy farmer cannot compete with large 
corporate farms. But this is contrary to 
our self image as a state, which is deeply 
tied up in the romantic notion of the 
family dairy farm. It's an anachronism 
that is difficult to come to terms with." 

A day student at Governor Dummer 
Academy, John had grown up around 
farms in South Byfield "when it was real- 
ly rural. I got educated (a degree in ar- 
chitectural sciences from Harvard) and 
did the obligatory city gig (in Boston and 
Washington, D.C.). But I really wanted 
the return to a rural community and 
work with my hands. I wanted the clas- 
sic 'strong body and strong mind' they 
talked about at Governor Dummer." He 
moved to Vermont 15 years ago and 
started a design and construction busi- 
ness, an "ideal blend" in which he did 
much of the construction himself. 

John and his wife Nan live in a house 
they built overlooking the Ompompa- 
noosuc River, with daughters Torrey, 
16; Julia, 14; and Winslow, 4. Now John 
is a consultant in architectural design, 
energy conservation and residential con- 
struction. He also has a snow plow busi- 
ness that serves 60 families in Norwich 
and Thetford, "a remunerative avo- 
cation," and he and Nan have a clothing 

business, Viewpoint, in West Lebanon, 
New Hampshire, which Nan manages. 

"We live modestly," John says. "We do 
just enough to meet the basic needs and 
then get out and play." 

"Play" to him means "making public 
policy and doing community service." 

"This notion," he explains, "comes 
from going to Governor Dummer Aca- 
demy. You couldn't go to Governor 
Dummer at the time I did and not have 
a social consciousness, a desire to play a 
constructive role in the community. 
That was an important message that 
came out of the Academy . . . pro-active 
community service, responding to peo- 
ple's needs. It is very real to me that 
that's where it came from . . . from Gov- 
ernor Dummer and my parents." 

This is John's first venture into elective 
state politics, though he has served local- 
ly on the school board, planning com- 
mission and board of appeals, and he 
has spent six years on the Republican 
State Committee (he describes himself as 
a "progressive Republican" in the tradi- 
tion of the late senator George Aiken). 

He is one of eight candidates - four 
Republicans and four Democrats - run- 
ning for Windsor County's three seats in 
the state senate (30 seats in all). Of the 
eight, one is incumbent and three are 
former members of the House; John and 
three others have no legislative experi- 

"Campaigning is kind of a free-for-all," 
he says. "There is a strong tradition that 
you don't campaign against anyone on 
an individual basis. It is also a radical 
step to speak out so explicitly about a 
global problem, such as the plight of the 
small dairy farmer. The tendency is to 
focus on county-based issues, but when 
you get to the state house, you have to 
speak on issues that affect everyone. Peo- 
ple need to know where you stand." 

The response to his proposal has been 
"striking," . he says - mostly favorable, 
even from dairy farmers themselves. "It 
certainly does get everyone's attention." 

John is basically directing his own 
campaign and was particularly pleased 
with the press he received when he 
turned in his nomination papers. He

biked the 20 miles from Woodstock to 
the Windsor County Court House, with 
a lacrosse stick strapped behind. The 
local reporters "heard" about it; hence 
the photo here. "It did a lot," he says, 
"to enhance my Republican athletic 

In addition to public service, Gover- 
nor Dummer instilled in John a "pas- 
sion" (as Nan calls it) for lacrosse. He got 
"hooked on it - again" about five years 
ago, when he began helping GDA class- 
mate Jim Hunt coach the Hanover 
(N.H.) High School varsity team. John 
advanced to head coach this year. He 
also coaches an all-star team and has 
taught at summer lacrosse camps, "pri- 
marily to learn from the college-level 
counsellors." All New England for two 
years, he has also returned to campus to 
play in two recent alumni-varsity la- 
crosse games. 

John is a long-time GDA class secre- 
tary and Vermont state co-chairman, 
with John Wannop '68, for the capital 
campaign, To make a Significant Differ- 
ence. His brother Chick '58 of Camden, 
is Maine state chairman. 


Scott Williams 74 

Seeking better long-term health care 

Scott Williams 74 is only 32 years 
old, but he is concerned about 
the costs of long-term health 
care for the elderly. 
He is seeking a seat in the U.S. House 
of Representatives, from the 1st Con- 
gressional District of New Hampshire, 
by promoting a plan for long-term care 
in the home instead of in a nursing 

"Medicaid pays nursing home care 
only after a person's resources are de- 
pleted down to $2,500," Scott explains, 
"after the bank account is gone and the 
house is sold." Caring for people at 
home would be "infinitely cheaper and 
more effective than nursing home care, 
which typically costs around $35,000 a 
year," and he would pay for it by lifting 
the cap on Social Security taxes instead 
of bankrupting people." 

"Under the present system," Scott 
says, "working Americans pay Social Se- 
curity tax of 7.5% up to $45,000 of in- 
come; above $45,000, no one pays a 
dime. I would lift the cap and collect 
taxes of 1.5%, the Medicare portion, on 
income from $45,000 to infinity. This 
would raise $8 billion, while in-home 
health care is estimated to cost $6 bil- 

Response from voters and the press 
has been positive, he says. "It's amazing 
how many people you run into who 
have been directly or indirectly impacted 
by long-term expenses. For a few extra 
' bucks in taxes, we can alter the system 
and allay one of the greatest fears people 
have of growing old. They shouldn't 
have to worry about selling their homes 
and going bankrupt." 

This is Scott's first attempt at elected 
office, though his political career dates 
back to age 11. He started out working 
for Eugene McCarthy's presidential cam- 
paign in New Hampshire in the '60s, 
"licking stamps, ringing doorbells, doing 
whatever there was to be done." 

He was executive director of the New 
Hampshire Democratic Party in 1985 
and is now half-way through a two-year 
term as vice-chairman of the state party. 

He served as an advisor to Senator Al- 
bert Gore's presidential campaign in 
New Hampshire last winter, and travel- 
led some for him in the South, including 
Gore's home state of Tennessee. 

Scott's 1st District is one of two and 
basically covers the seacoast and the 
eastern half of the Granite State, a total 
of 88 communities ranging from indus- 
trial Manchester to Harts Location, up 
in the White Mountains, with 14 voters. 
About 23,000 people were expected to 
vote in the September 13 primary, when 
Scott faced Joseph Keefe, a cousin of his 
good friend Steve Dunfey, GDA class of 
'75. The winner will oppose two-term 
Republican incumbent Bob Smith in 

Scott is convinced that he has the up- 
per hand in this campaign "because of 
Mr. Navins' speech class at Governor 
Dummer Academy. It truly has made all 
of the difference. The ability to deliver 
an effective speech can make or break a 

"I remember that we had to give about 
10 different kinds of speeches in Mr. 
Navins' course," he goes on: "A speech 
of introdution, a speech to softly and 
calmly persuade someone, a speech that 
is very, very straight forward . . . 

"Mr. Navins always said that public 
speaking is the art of being able to think 
on your feet. I get up before an audience 
almost every day, and when I do, I have 
to think about who that audience is. I 
have to decide how best to start - with a 
joke or not; whether to speak a long 
time or cut it short, to be light and 
friendly or deadly serious. All the while, 
of course, delivering an important mes-

A shipment of friendship 

Headmaster Peter Bragdon and Vice'Consul Osamu Natsuno at dedica' 
tion of cherry trees. 

Six Japanese cherry trees, the gift 
of the International Cultural 
Association of Japan, were ded- 
icated at Governor Dummer 
Academy on May 5, and the Japanese 
vice-consul was on hand for the ceremo- 
ny. The trees had been planted on the 
ridge beside the Little Red Schoolhouse 
and the flag pole, overlooking the play- 
ing fields. 

"It is fitting," said Headmaster Peter 
W. Bragdon, "that they are bordering 
the very spot where the Academy's high- 
est award, the Morse Flag, is given every 

"It is an especially great honor," he 
added, "because this is the first time the 
trees have been planted anywhere but 
the banks of the Charles River." More 
than 700 trees have been given over the 
past four years to the Commonwealth 
by the people of Japan. All but these six 
have been planted along the Charles in 
Boston and Cambridge. 

"These trees," said the Honorable 
Osamu Natsuno, vice-consul, "will 
watch over the young students as they 
prepare themselves to be the carriers of 
America's future. I like to think of the 
trees as a symbol of mutual caring. If you 
care for the trees, the trees will care for 
"It is also my hope, in a less philosoph- 


ical way, that the trees will inspire inter- 
st in Japan among the students who pass 
through this fine school and that this 
interest will breed understanding which 
will, in turn, help keep our bilateral rela- 
tions friendly and constructive. 

"I have come here today with a Japa- 
nese export that no American will be 
critical of. I bring you a shipment of 
friendship. We are hoping for shipments 
of friendship from the United States." 

A celebration of friendship 

Doris Marsolais of the food service was

giant collage the art students did of her. 
She received yet another honor when 
the staff of the Milestone dedicated the

The inscription on the opening page 

A celebration of friendship. 

During the 225th year of the Aca- 
demy we have all become more 
aware than ever of the value of 
friendships. Friendliness welcomes 
the new students as well as the re- 
turning veterans; gives the crisp 
days of autumn more zest; makes 
winter days more bearable; and en- 
courages us to share the joy of 
spring with others. 

At Governor Dummer there is 
none more remarkable for friendli- 
ness than the person who greets al- 
most all of us by name every day. A 
greeting for all is great, but praise 
or sympathy, comments and inquir- 
ies into our joys and problems are 
beyond expectation. For her inter- 
est and concern for each and every 
member of the Governor Dummer 
community, we respectfully ded- 
icate the 1988 MILESTONE to our 
great friend - Doris Marsolais.

Annual Fund 

The 1988-89 Annual Fund began Oc- 
tober 1 with a record year goal of 
$600,000 as part of the three-year plan to 
raise $1.8 million by June 30, 1990. 

The 1987-88 Fund reached $589,682, a 
9% increase over the previous year. Gifts 
from alumni totalled $414,261, up 
$63,825 over last year, participation 
41%. The trustees once again took the 
leadership position by contributing near- 
ly $100,000 in gifts and matches. All 
other gifts came from current and past 
parents, friends, grandparents, and oth- 
ers. Details can be found in the separate 
Annual Report of Giving, which accom- 
panies this issue. 

Senior Parents Fund 

The 1988 Senior Parents have given or 

pledged $128,335 toward an endowed 
Young Master's Chair. Their gifts are 
incorporated into the overall campaign 
goal to increase Governor Dummer's en- 

This amount given by a senior class

Spring Sports 

Abu and the running A's 

Distance coach David Abusam- 
ra, better known as "Abu," 
didn't dike Ins spring coach- 
ing hal eft until August 1. 

Abu could be seen running many a 
summer morning alongside senior Amy 
Russell and sophomore Alexis Colby, 
whom he coached through nine post- 
season meets, including the Bay State 
Games, the regional Junior Olympics 
and the nationals in Gainesville, Flor- 
ida, on July 31. 

Both girls had taken age-group firsts in 
the 1500 meters at the regional Junior 
Olympic championships at Albany on 
July 9, Amy in 4:58.6, and Alexis in 
5:04.5, a personal record. Amy went on 
to win the Gold Medal in the girls' 1600 
meters at the Bay State Games at M.I.T. 
in 5:20.3, faster than anyone in the 
women's open division, while Alexis ran 
sixth in the 800. 

At the Nationals in Gainesville, Amy 
set a 4:53.2 personal record while qual- 
ifying for the young women's 1500 me- 
ters, then placed 10th in the finals on 
the following day. Alexis, running ill, 
was edged out for the finals. 

Abu enjoyed the summer workouts, 
which often began at 7 a.m., rain or 
shine, and he was at every meet, careful- 
ly clocking laps and offering encourage- 
ment. "I like kids to come to running on 
their own," he says. "I normally recom- 
mend that they take a month off after 
spring track and then start training for 
cross-country in August. But these two 
girls wanted to compete." 

"I've never coached an athlete with 
Amy's self-discipline and total dedica- 
tion," he goes on. "Alexis has a lot of 
hutzpa, and she is blossoming, learning 
from Amy. They are a great team and 
best friends." 

Abu's own running and language ca- 
reers both began at Assumption Prep in 
Worcester, which was run by the Ca- 
nadian Order of Assumptionist Fathers. 
Every course but English was taught in 
French, and he calls it "The most won- 
derful educational experience one could 
have. I wanted to go back to Assump- 
tion to teach and coach more than any- 
thing in the world." 

He started running spring track there 
as a junior, and went on to set the 
school record for the 880 in 2:07 as a 

Coach David "Abu" Abusamra training with Amy Russell '89 and Alexis 
Colby '91. 

senior. He was hooked. 

He ran cross-country, indoor and 
spring track off and on for four years at 
Holy Cross. A dual language/pre-med 
major, he continued running in Paris, 
where he and his wife Laurel worked on 
their master's degrees through Middle- 
bury College, and he has been running 
ever since. How much he runs depends 
on what he's training for, which varies 
from the 200 m. dash ("I still have a little 
speed left in me."), on up to the mar- 
athon. He competes locally and around 
New England and in August and early 
September ran 70 miles a week to pre- 
pare for the Clarence DeMar Marathon 
in Keene, New Hampshire, where he 
hopes to qualify for "The Boston." He 
had missed qualifying by one minute on 
one previous occasion and five minutes 
on another. 

Assumption Prep had closed by the 
time Abu was ready to teach, and he 
spent two years at Maiden High before 
coming to Governor Dummer. He and 
Laurel arrived in 1972, both to teach 
French (he now teaches Spanish as well). 
He was head indoor track coach and 
distance coach in the spring until 1980, 
when he began coaching cross-country 
as well. He continued to use the time- 
tested cross-country course, but expand- 
ed it to 5K by including the lower fields. 
That is the more standardized distance, 
he says, what the girls will run in college. 

In the classroom, Abu's antics are well 
known. Soft-spoken in regular conversa- 
tion, he says simply that "A lot of lan- 
guage teachers take on a different per- 

sonality in the classroom, when they 
speak the foreign language. My style is to 
be dramatic. It's my way of getting atten- 
tion. I've been known to throw objects 
out the windows or walk across the 
room on desks." 

He says he has coached a lot of fine 
runners here over the years. David Mill- 
er '87, whom he coached through the 
Bay State Games in the summer of '87, 
was particularly exciting because he only 
started as a junior. Among the others: 
Bob Kruger '77, who ran at West Point; 
Andy Barton '83, who was All-Ameri- 
can at Wheaton (111.) College; Greg Skaff 
'83, the top cross-country runner and 
League All-Star at Franklin and Mar- 
shall; Gary Longstreet '86, the first dis- 
tance runner to ever get an MVP in 
spring track (Miller was the second); Es- 
mee Huggard '85; Kelly Golden '86; 
Neda Kalhori '80; Anita Russo '87; and 
Ann Rooney '82. 

"Training is what makes the difference 
in distance," Abu says. "Running is so 
mental. It is the purest of the sports. 
When the gun goes off, you're all by 
yourself. No one can throw you the ball 
or back you up. No one can make Ing- 
ham Hill for you. It requires self-disci- 
pline, which carries over into other 
areas. A lot of our runners do well aca- 
demically, because it gives them self con- 
fidence. It affects how they look at them- 
selves. The hard work pays off." 

The Abusamras are dorm masters in 
Boynton House. Laurel has run and is a 
dedicated judge and time-keeper. Their 
daughter Use is running in junior high. 




Another New England title for women s track 

The skeleton women's track 
team, only nine members 
strong, brought home their 
fifth New England Class B 
championship in six years. They all, said 
coach MaryEllen Karin, had put team 
effort above themselves all season, com- 
peting in three and four events in every 

In the process of winning the New 
Englands, they set two school records: 
Amy Russell '89 of Hampton Falls, New 
Hampshire, by winning the 1500 meter 
run in 4:57.1 and Lisa Hernandez '89 of 
Wenham, by winning the long jump at 
16' 2 3/4". 

Lisa Sweeney '88 of San Antonio, 
Texas, was named MVP for being "a 
major catalyst for the team." She ran the 
maximum number of events in every 
meet, Karin said; she placed first in the 
Independent School League in the 100 
and 300 meter hurdles (in 17.0 and 49.5 
respectively) and was undefeated all year 
in the latter. 

The Gilbert Distance Award for wom- 
en was shared by Russell and Alexis Col- 
by '91 of Ipswich, who ran three events 
in the ISL championships and set a new 
school record of 2:28 in the 800 meter 

Sweeney, Russell and Hernandez were 
all named All-League, along with Shan- 
non Davenport '90 of Rye, New Hamp- 
shire, who was third in the New En- 
glands in the 100 and 200 meter dashes 
(at 13.5 and 28.7) and fourth in the jave- 
lin at 103'10". 

Golf: an ISL championship Mens track 

MVP's John Sullivan '88, golf, and 
Lisa Sweeney '88, women's track, 
at Baccalaureate. 

The varsity golfers won the ISL 
championship in their best season in the 
school's history; they were 16-2-2 over- 

Co-captain James Sullivan '88 of An- 
dover, the team's MVP, was the Number 
1 golfer in the ISL and the Boston Globe's 
Player of the Year, while Jason Twomey 
'90 of Lynnfield and Arvid Swanson '88 
of Newfields, New Hampshire, were All- 
League as well. 

The team also won the tri-school 
Witherspoon Cup, beating Phillips Aca- 
demy, Andover by 83 strokes and Phil- 
lips Exeter by 102 strokes, in three 
rounds of play. 

"We've come a long way," says first- 
year coach Ken Casazza, "from the days 
when much smaller Governor Dummer 
had a 20 point handicap." 

This was Casazza's second cham- 
pionship team in a year; his varsity 
women's soccer team won the New Eng- 
land title in the fall. 


The varsity baseball team had a solid 
9-5 season in League play, and coach 
Mike Moonves presented the MVP to 
"the best player I've had in nearly 20 
years of coaching here... John Khantzi- 
an." In 14 League games, this year, the 
Groveland senior and four-year letter- 
man scored 19 runs, stole 13 bases, and 
had 17 hits, 15 RBIs and seven home 
runs (one short of the League record). 
He won the Goodwin Athletic Prize at 
graduation and will be attending Bran- 
deis University on a baseball schol- 

The Senior Baseball Trophy went to 
Andy Noel of Hopkinton. "Because of 
him," Moonves said, "we have been a 
contender for the past three years." 

In addition to Khantzian, unanimous 
All-League choices were Matt Pascucci 
'90 of Swampscott and Rob Wattie '89 of 
Atkinson, New Hampshire. 

Head track coach Ed Rybicki called 
MVP Todd Dixon '90 of Billerica "the 
best jumper in the school's long track 
history" and "the fastest runner in the 
Independent School League." 

All-League Dixon was high-scorer at 
the ISL meet and first in three events 
the long jump, the triple jump, and the 
100-meter dash in 10.1. He was unde- 
feated in the three events all season. 

He also set the school record in three 
events - the long jump at 22'4 1/2"; the 
triple jump_at 44' 11", and the 4x100 me- 
ter relay at 44.1. The record-setting relay 
team, second in the state among all 
schools of all sizes, also included Dave 
Dunwell '88 of Lynn, Bill Karger '88 of 
Swampscott, and Kyrie Stevens '89 of 

The Gilbert Distance Award went to 
Cabot Orton '88 of Peru, Vermont, who 
placed fourth in the ISLs and sixth in 
New England in the 3000 meter run (a 
9:28.1 personal record), and third in the 
ISL in the 1500 meter, at 4.20.1. 


Varsity women's coach Liz Ruhl 
named Kara Moheban '88 of Nashua, 
New Hampshire, MVP, with 60 career 
goals and an All-League nomination. 

Ann Weitzman of Lexington '88, a 
four-year varsity winner with 127 career 
goals, was also nominated All-League as 
well as Ail-American. 

The men's team, with a 6-3 League 
record and 6-8 overall, ended up fourth 
of 14 teams in the ISL. Coach Steve 
Shea's MVPs were co-captains Tony 
D'Orazio '88 of Wenham and Dan Mori- 
son '88 of West Duxbury. Morison was 
also elected to the All-Star team of the 
ISL's Colonial Division. 


MVP for coach Peggy Childs' women's 
tennis team was Jill Packard '88 of 
Hampton, New Hampshire, while Chris 
D'Orio '88 of Marblehead was MVP of 
coach Wally Rowe's men's tennis team.

A fond recollection 

By Benjamin J. Stone 

On many a Sunday morning I 
used to look down from my 
place on the organ bench at 
Ascension Memorial 
Church in Ipswich and see my good 
friend and colleague, Ed Dunning, 
seated with the boys from the Academy. 
It was, I felt, the right setting for this 
man of high principles and sincere con- 
victions. Various clergymen came and 
went, as did the students, but Ed was 
always there. I thought of this at his 
memorial service in Moseley Chapel on 
July 8, 1988. 

Ed and I had a number of things in 
common. Each of us was influenced by a 
rural Upstate New York background, 
and each went to college in the Mohawk 
Valley, - he at Union (B.S. in 1924), and 
I, 75 miles away, at Hamilton. We both 
loved the outdoors - the fields and 
woods and streams - and we liked to use 
tools. We gardened together during 
World War II, raising food for our young 
families. (Ed already had one war to his 
credit, having served in the U.S. Navy 
during World War I.) When I joined the 
Math Department at Governor Dum- 
mer, Ed was the man I instinctively 
turned to for guidance. And for many 
years our offices were across the hall 
from each other in the Phillips Building. 
One of the lessons I learned from Ed 

was that any knowledge or skill one has 
acquired along the way can be put to use 
when working in an independent board- 
ing school. I remember the surveying 
instruments and the drafting table that 
stood in the corner of his office - relics 
from his days as a highway engineer for 
the State of New York - and constantly 
in use at the Academy as Ed Dunning 
laid out athletic fields, building sites, and 
paths and roadways. As early as 1932 we 
find Ed planning and supervising the 
construction (by volunteer student la- 
bor) of drainage ditches on Morse Field, 
and of an earthen dam for a new hockey 
rink adjacent to the present site of Ing- 
ham Dormitory. 

Perhaps these skills of Ed's were in 
Headmaster Eames's mind when he be- 
gan his letter to the Alumni in the 
Spring of 1955 with these words: "This is 
a special year on the campus because 
four of the men whom I brought with 
me, when I came here in the summer of 
1930, are now completing their 25th 
consecutive year of teaching at Gover- 
nor Dummer. These men are Edgar 
Dunning, Thomas Mercer, Macdonald 
Murphy, and Arthur Sager. These four 
men, working with me and with each 
other, have provided the foundation 
upon which the school, as we know it 
today, has been built, and they continue 
even now to carry on their shoulders the 
framework of the Academy. Where is 
there another school so fortunate?" 

After William Jacob's untimely death 
in 1938, Ed Dunning took over as regis- 
trar. He was also the obvious choice for 
the position of business manager of the 
school, although he continued to teach 
both English and math. Ed ably filled 
this post for nearly 30 years. He was 
instrumental in the formation of the As- 
sociation of Business Officers of New 
England Preparatory Schools, a valuable 
and profitable effort among schools 
which, in other areas, were largely com- 

John Ragle's Governor Dummer Acade- 
m\ History 1763-/963, in speaking of Ed's 
career, closes with this summary: "Pa- 
tient but firm, good-humored but forth- 
right, he has commanded the respect 
and cooperation of generations of boys." 

Yes, and of his colleagues on the fac- 
ulty. Edgar Dunning has given a special 
force to the word "dedication."

wonderful fishing for king salmon in Knight's Inlet, 
British Columbia. Paul obviously could not get 
back for the reunion doings last June, although he 
had been giving it serious consideration. "I would 
like to see Peter and Dottie Bragdon again. They 
truly made an impression on me."

trouble with me is I can't walk far or fast!" 


Elly Morse has been moving back and forth 
between his home in Danvers and the hospital 
since 1986 when he underwent an operation which 
developed complications. In combination with his 
earlier breathing problems, Elly has been ailing for 
all too long. However, his wife Natalie more re- 
cently has been taking him out for drives and 
lunch from time to time, and his breathing was 
much better at last report. 

Henry Stone joined the Old Guard for the 
luncheon on reunion weekend and appeared in 
brimming good health. Henry has been phasing 
out his retirement career in a number of civic 
activities. For 10 years he was a Framingham town 
meeting member and then became chairman of the 
American Red Cross disaster team, taking, as Hen- 
ry says, "a great many courses to learn how to 
create a really fine calamity." Additionally, he did 
a long stint transporting cancer patients for treat- 
ment. "Now," he says, "I just enjoy getting back to 
Byfield to see the wonderful advances in the physi- 
cal plant and, of course, the other members of the 
Old Guard." 


A cordial welcome back to Katsubiko Fujiya- 
ma, who has been "found" at 25-18 Shigashigotan- 
da 5-Chrome, Tokyo, after all these years. 

Jerry May missed the Old Guard luncheon at 
Governor Dummer last June, his plan to attend 
having been, as he put it, "disrupted by a fire 
which caused much damage to the second floor of 
our home in Kingston, Mass., although no casual- 
ties." Instead of enjoying our very pleasant lun- 
cheon in the Mansion House, Jerry was dealing 
with clean-up people, carpenters and electricians. 


Tom Fearnside has given up his home by the 
golf course at Bald Peak Colony Club on Lake 
Winnepesaukee and moved to a more easily man- 
ageable condo nearby. 

George Haley, who still lives just over the 
border in St. Stephen, N.B., receives the three 
television networks out of Bangor, Maine, and so 
is "reduced" to following U.S. politics which, of 
course, he finds appalling. But, "we're no better off 
with Maloney, who wants to sell Canada. He and 
his 75 pairs of Gucci shoes!" 

Russ Hamilton, on the other hand, has had 
no luck in his extended search for a new home for 
Marge and himself and so was back in Pittston, 
N.J., for the summer. 

"Quiet summer on Lake Sunapee," Len Law- 
son reports. "Quiet winter to come, we expect, in 
Sarasota. Getting old, I guess."

Warren Lane retired from the wholesale shoe 
business 21 years ago, moved to Washington, 
N.C., and, it seems, has been retiring ever since. 
Warren has served as executive director of the 
Downtown Washington Association for 10 of the 
last 13 years, serving one stint of eight years, re- 
tiring for three years, then accepting an invitation 
to serve again - service from which he has recently 
retired, again. Warren has been married to the 
former Jacqueline Isanogle, a Washington native, 
for 54 years, and it was their many visits to her 
home town while Warren was working in Boston 
and New York which drew them back there in 
retirement. And Warren has made himself an inte- 
gral part of the community, also serving as a direc- 
tor of the Washington Housing Authority and the 
Lights of Love Foundation, and active in St. Peters 
Episcopal Church, the Masons, Elks and Rotary. 


"Both Anne and I enjoyed the reunion very 
much," Bill Bottger wrote. "We felt the highlight 
was the luncheon at the Mansion House for the 
Old Guard. After we left Newburyport, we spent 
several days in Maine, then back to Virginia and 
finally down to our place on Chesapeake Bay 
where we enjoyed boating, fishing and loafing 
through the summer." Bill and John English 
were the 1928 representatives at the reunion festi- 
vities and they enjoyed their first get-together in, 
they estimated, something embarrassingly close to 
50 years.

John P. H. (Cow) Chandler, Jr. reports from 
his Warner, N.H., base that he is already cam- 
paigning for his 18th term in the New Hampshire 
Senate. Cow previously served 12 years in the New 
Hampshire House. His platform includes: No new 
taxes, no general sales or income tax, no snack tax, 
a constitutional amendment to return to biennial 
legislative sessions and continuing to work with 
Governor Sununu to put in place a state budget 
which meets the needs of the people without im- 
posing broad-based taxes. Cow's four children 
have given him 16 grandchildren and seven great- 

grandchildren, with an eighth in prospect even as

Edna and Rod Gearhart say they "enjoyed the

Another who has found that old age and the 
"golden years" don't always match up is Bunny 
Wilson, who has been coping with emphysema

Carl Buechner "very much enjoyed the 225th 
Anniversary Reunion in June. From Orleans, 
Mass., it is easy to get to GDA for summer events. 
Getting there from Winter Park, Fla., during fall,

more of the world and winter ski trips, plus trying 
to be a helpful citizen in a number of things, keep 
life from being dull. Would hate to die of bore-

speaking poor in California.

desks on the left side middle had been removed 
and replaced with a raised platform and a desk for 
the watchful teacher. Final exams came along with 
three-hour study halls for those not involved. The 
monitoring teacher walked in to find three desks 
along the side where his desk had been, and four 
desks removed from the center of the room and 
replaced by the platform and desk. Ergo, he had to 
stand for the entire three hours in order to main- 
tain control of the room. Do students still do 
things like that?

Walter Faget says, "I can't begin to tell you all 
how much I enjoyed the 50th Reunion in June. I'm 
one of those who hadn't been back to school, and I 
found it a chore to find my way around at first. 
The way they have improved and enlarged is unbe- 
lievable. The funny thing was that the masters 
didn't show the years as much as we did, and it 
was a joy to meet their wives and spend some time 
with them. When I got back to Michigan I found 
that the automobile companies hadn't given up, 
and we are buried in work; luckily I guess, and my 
wife, son and I find plenty to do either at the 
factory or at home charging around after the four 
grandkids. I must admit that I came home with 
renewed vigor after talking to Mike Lawler, Jack

siasm and drive and give us a great example to 

Francis Pierce and his wife Barbara came 
down from Houlton, Maine, and enjoyed the 50th: 
"It was good to see old friends and just walking 
around the school made for pleasant nostalgia. Mr. 
Bragdon's remarks were a delightful blend of wit 
and wisdom." 

"The reunion was a very happy one," writes 
Henry Faurot, "as it was great to see fellow class- 
mates after 50 years. The Navins dinner was one of 
the highlights. What I enjoyed most was seeing all 
of our former masters who are all such great peo- 
ple. The many new additions and improvements 
are a great asset to Governor Dummer." Henry 
lives in Vero Beach, Fla. 

Tom Johnson and his wife Miriam "enjoyed 
the reunion greatly." While in Newburyport, Tom 
spoke with Eleanor Eames by telephone. "She re- 
gretted not being able to attend the reunion be- 


cause of a recent fall, and sent her best wishes to all 
of our returning classmates." 

Dick Cary and his wife Ursula enjoyed reunion 
and Dick gave a great impromptu pitch for the 
Alumni Fund while accepting the Reunion Class 
Bowl which was awarded to '38 as the Reunion 
Class with the highest dollar total for 1988 - 
$14,150. The Carys live north of Niagara Falls and 
Dick is a volunteer at the Old Fort Niagara, June 
through August. 

"Among my first jobs," Dick writes, "was as 
guide at the Old Fort in the summer of 1939 at 50 
cents per hour. The following year I was head 
guide at $25 per week. I have come full circle as I 
am a member of the board of directors at the Old

The following letter, written in June, was re- 
ceived from Bill McClary. I am sure you will 
enjoy his reminiscences of political skulduggery 44 
years ago. 

"Dear Dick, 

Warren Furth may remember the 1944 "elec- 
tion" at GDA where Dewey swamped FDR (See 
'45 Notes in May Archon.). But he may not remem- 
ber that the big event was the kidnapping of the 
distinguished Senator from Illinois* by the other 
nine Republicans at Ambrose House. 

The Senator was tied, put under cement bags in 
a nearby garage and all his pants were taken! 
Nonetheless, he showed up 30 to 40 minutes late to 
expose the dirty deed. The audience, though, was 
unimpressed by this precursor of Watergate. 

As I remember, Don Palais was the Demo 'cap- 
tain.' I can't remember the Republican leader - but 
I assume from Alabama, you also were Demo then. 
You may have changed, but I still hold the faith. 
And with Palais, you and me on the Demo side, I 
fair say we could have held any other three you 
could name at bay anyway! 

One fellow (later was good friend of mine) was so 
ingrained Republican, I remember walking down 
the board snow-walk to the Phillips Building and 
him running out shouting, 'Did you hear the good 
news? Roosevelt died!' 

There is the old Chinese curse - 'May you live in 
interesting times.' 



P.S. Oh yes. I stole a pair of Al Furth's pants to

part of the undefeated football team our senior 
year . . . Newton Hyslop: The challenging

and leadership (Senior Council), despite not being 
a varsity-quality athlete . . . Bill King: Playing on 
undefeated football team in '52 . . . Phillip

teacher I ever had. 

Percival Lowell and his wife Marita sold their 
house and business in Chester, N.H., in Novem- 
ber, 1986, after 21 years, and moved into a 28-foot 
travel trailer. They moved to South Bristol, Maine, 
in April of 1987 to build a boatyard from scratch. 
They still live in the trailer, but will be moving into 
an apartment in the corner of the boat shop soon.

At least two classmates are planning ahead to 
our reunion in '89: Stuart Miller and Ron Papa- 

rella have made their commitments. 

Ron Paparella has returned to the area as 
president of Towle Silversmiths, the Newburyport 
division of Towle Manufacturing Co. For the past 
two years, he had been president of United State 
Gold Corp. in St. Petersburg, Fla., a jewelry man- 
ufacturing company. Previously he was with Wal- 
lace-International Silversmiths, four years as presi- 
dent and 1 1 years as vice-president of marketing. 


Philip Angel!, jr., Secretary 

The 225th Graduation on the Mansion House 
lawn brought out Skip Pescosolido and Bill 
Ardiff among the honored guests on the speaker's 
platform, together with Peter Bragdon (honorary 
'55) and Elizabeth Dole, former Secretary of Trans- 
portation, as the commencement speaker. Skip 
handed out diplomas to the members of the grad- 
uating class of '88, including Elizabeth Leary and 
Rebecca Angell, daughters of Dan Leary and 
myself. Bill Eliot was in the audience as a parent 
of an underclassman, David '90, and of a new 
student for fall, Peter '92. 

Marilyn and Don Hicks live in Coral Gables, 
Fla., and Don operates his own PR and advertising 
firm in Miami. Their daughter Laura, Dartmouth 
'85, has graduated from Washington &. Lee Law 
School, and son Jeffrey, from Amherst. "That 
completes our children's education. Whew!", he 

Bob Silberstein has been a lawyer specializing 
in trials for 26 years. He is divorced and now 
engaged. He has four children; a junior at UMass, 
a graduate of Wharton, a TV anchor for an ABC 
affiliate in Cincinnati and one in sales in Chicago. 

Frank Wolcott is a vice-president at A.G. Ed- 
wards 6k Sons and is active in land preservation 
through the Nature Conservatory. His hobby is 
restoring antique boats. He is married with two 

Allan Keith has spent 25 years in the financial 
community after the Army and Harvard Business 
School. In August, 1987, he was recruited by Alli- 
ance Capital Management in New York to help 
build a business in the investment management of 
insurance company assets, which he finds exciting, 
educational and enjoyable. His oldest daughter 
graduated from St. Lawrence last year, the middle 
one is a junior at Ithaca and the youngest started 
high school in September. "Life is frantic at times," 
he writes, "but never uninteresting." 

My father, during his lifetime, communicated 
every Christmas beginning in 1956 with Dick But- 
ler of Market Wheighton, England. I have contin- 
ued this correspondence since 1978. Dick has been 
a doctor since 1962 and recently became a justice

of the peace, which is an old English office first 
started more than 600 years ago. Rosalie and I 
spent July of this year touring Europe as a 25th 
wedding anniversary gift to each other. A memora- 
ble experience upon arriving in London was a 
frightening ride in a London taxi cab in heavy, fast 
traffic, with intersections, rotary traffic, etc., on 
what is to us the wrong side of the road and with 
the driver on the wrong side of the cab. The driver 
spoke with both hands and in one of the least 
understandable London dialects. I called Dick by 
telephone later and during our conversation told 
him how difficult it had been to communicate with 
the cab driver. Dick said, "I can understand that, 
he was talking English." Dick received a degree in 
law from the University of Hull on July 10 and said 
that "it wasn't very difficult." 

J O Chick Carroll, Secretary 

MEMORIES . . . Ralph Ardiff: Learning to 
play lacrosse under the tutelage of Heb 
Evans . . . Maxwell Brace: Getting into one var- 
sity football game my senior year (although it was 
due to the flu which decimated the entire school), 
winning the steak dinner for first place in intramu- 
ral volleyball . . . Peter Kalat: Tumultuous 
relationship with Mr. Ohrn and trying to prevent 
him from kicking me out . . . Jim Main: Graduat- 
ing! It was a squeeker; Glee Club and Meistersing- 
ers. Was I really always fighting with Jerry Marks 
and Neil Quinn? . . . Harry Temple: Getting the 
"F" every day in Tom Mercer's language 
class . . . Ken Weene: Editing the literary mag- 
azine with Jerry Monks; I used my "business" role 
to get away with a lot . . . Harvey Hayden: De- 
feating Belmont Hill in baseball in the final game 
of junior year, after Belmont Hill had been unde- 
feated for the season . . . Chick Carroll: Several 
football games under Art Sager, especially Milton, 
1956; Being chided by Tom Mercer for being un- 
prepared or for minor disciplinary actions; terrific 
frustration in math classes all four years. 

Our 30th Reunion was highlighted by a great 
honor paid to classmate Harvey Hayden. Harv 
was maneuvered into arriving on time for the Sat- 
urday event by his friend Mercedes Herosom. On 
arrival, he discovered other members of his family 
present to witness his being named Alumnus of the 
Year by the Governor Dummer Alumni Associa- 

tion. It was a big surprise to Harvey; but to those 
of us who have watched his tireless efforts - for the 
school and for our class - nobody could be more 
deserving. Congratulations and thanks, Harv. 

Otherwise, our 30th was quiet, but enjoyable. 
Jack Morse, Tony Bourne, Jim Main, Ken 
Weene, Harvey Hayden, and Chick Carroll 
were able to make it for all or some of the festivi- 

What we lacked were sufficient numbers to pre- 
vail in the softball game with the class of '63. We 
joined with earlier reunion classes on a joint old- 
timers team, and managed to "hold-em" to a 10-0 
score - or was it 15-0. Lots of fun on Buster Navins 

As usual in June, Governor Dummer was beauti- 
ful to see, the friendships pleasant to renew and 
the memories warm to recall. And none of us 
looked a day older! 

Other news: Neil Quinn and his wife Betsy live 
in Guilford, Vt., and have a bicycle and cross- 
country ski business, West Hill Shop, in Putney. 
Neil plays in a summer lacrosse league and some- 
times runs into Geoff Nichols '60 (See '60 notes). 
The Quinn children are Bevan, 24; Jeremy, 23 and 
Mauireen, 18.

Usually I do not use this column to solicit funds 
for the Academy. This will be an exception be- 
cause the campaign To make A Significant Differ- 
ence is an exception. You will read much about the 
campaign in the Archon and in the material you 
will receive from the Academy. The campaign is 
designed to place GDA in a leadership position 
among small boarding schools in this country. 
Please accept the Trustees' invitation to join the 
campaign by making the strongest capital commit- 
ment that you can, while continuing to support 
the Annual Fund. 

At the 225th Anniversary celebration on March 
1, Gretchen and I were joined at dinner by Bill 
Donnelly. Bill has moved east to Concord, 


Ma , from 1 li w, to be 

denl ; Ho pital Bill 

till tool nd few oi 

in 1959. 

At the alum union weekend in June, I 

ttch up with several classmates. Bob 
Pouch, whom I have not seen since graduation, 
■ n with Susan, his wife oi two years, and 
lus brother Ken '62 and Ken's son, Ken, Jr. Bob is 
still with Barber Steamship Lines, headquartered 
in Staten Island, N.Y. His emphasis in this busi- 
ness has shifted from the movement of ships in 
harbor by tugboat to ocean transport and total 
management of ships. Susan and Bob just returned 
a 14-day, around-the-world trip. Hong Kong 
and India were among their stops. Bob reminded 
me that six members of the Pouch family have 
graduated from GDA. Impressive. 

John Catlett is currently a consultant for the 
Irish Government to put a new radio station on 
the air. Previously he was involved with an off- 
shore radio station broadcasting American rock 
from a ship in the North Sea into England and 
Holland. He did this 1 1/2 years until the ship was 
seized by the British Government while in port for 
repairs. Prior to this, John was involved with a 
black radio station in Hartford and before that, 
taught marketing at the University of Connecti- 
cut. He lives in New York City. 

John informs us that he occasionally sees Rob- 
ert (no longer to be called "Bobby") Dietz in 
England. Robert is renting an apartment from a 
baron and baroness in Pirbright, and is studying 
the art of fine bookbinding. This is a departure 
from his prior career in entymology. 

John sees Brian March frequently: sometimes 
he'll bump into him just walking down the street 
in London. Brian's insurance firm - Nelson, Hurst, 
and March - specializes in business fraud insur- 
ance. He has subsidiaries in the U.S., which bring 
him to our country occasionally. 

Word has it that Ferg Jansen has returned to 
Simsbury, Conn., from Cleveland, to the Hop- 
brook Restaurant in an old grain mill. Perhaps 
someone could provide me with more details. 

Speaking of which, don't be shy. Write or call 
me with news or thoughts. Your classmates would 
like to read about you. 

One more item. Next June, 1989, is our 30th 
Reunion. We need to start planning this fall. I will 
update you in the winter about dates and activ- 
ities. However, I am asking now for volunteers 
geographically spread out to simply make contact 
with classmates and encourage them to return to 
the Academy. Bob Pouch and John Catlett will 
help in the greater New York area. I need people 
from the South, West, and Midwest. Drop me a 
note if you want to help. See you in June 1989. 

We already have a good group planning to come 
to reunion, in addition to myself: Alan Tucker, 
Bill Whiting, Jim Foley, Bill Donnelly, John 
Catlett and Ferg Jansen. 


Greg Meyer, Secretary 

I am divorced after 20 years; my son Frank, 19, is 
at college, and daughter Tamara, 16, a senior in 
high school. 1 am now working full time at F. 
Meyer Supply Co., a wholesale hardware firm, as 
president and general manager, and still serve as 
vice-president and consultant for The Meyer Fur- 
nace Co. Apartment life is somewhat boring. I 
seem to be spending more and more time at my 
new friends' homes. I am really amazed at how 


GDA has grown. I would again like to urge m, 
i lassmates to send then news, espei tally now that I 
have time.

tock, Vt., this summer, when lie ran into Geoff

forte - "Up, up", sneaking to Dodges' Apple Farm 
and Plum Island . . . Stephen Witt: Mac Mur- 
phy, singing, graduating. 

Our 25th Reunion is now history. What an en- 
joyable weekend! It's always great to see good 
friends, even if they're seen frequently like (for me) 
Jeff Ellis. It's also good to renew friendships with 
those seen on a more irregular basis, like Peter 
Coburn, Steve Witt, Bob Taylor, Rusty Nav- 
ins, Jon Shafmaster, Randy Langenbach, and 
Bill Sloane. It's nicer yet to see friends not seen in 
many years, like Forbes Farmer and Teddy 
Cook (Ted, Forbes wants to know if you still have 
your "Duck."). Perhaps best of all, and somewhat 
emotional at the same time, was getting together 
with, talking to, laughing and reminiscing with 
Andy Thomas, Frank Gummey, Terry Dela- 
no, Dave Dent, Dave Faxon, Cam Barr, 
Dave Caldwell, Mark Petri, Carson Taylor, 
Scott Surrey and Gary Whitford (who I unfor- 
tunately missed). 

Our 25th Reunion is now history. Quite honest- 
ly, however, I must look back on the Event with 
mixed emotions. Voiced best by Forbes, but em- 
phasized by all, was the reflection that the "Place" 
(GDA) did in fact mean a whole lot more to each 
of us than we might previously have cared to ad- 
mit. But, that in itself is no reason for mixed emo- 
tions. The mixed emotions come into play when I 
think back on those who weren't there. It was too 
bad Chad Smith, Dave Hilgendorff, Bob 
Mann, and Don Connelly were not able to at- 
tend - Don, at the last minute, for business rea- 
sons; Dave because he was involved in a once-in-a- 
lifetime opportunity to be in the Newport-to-Ber- 
muda (hope I got that right) Race with four genera- 
tions of his family; and Benny, in Mexico and the 
British West Indies on his honeymoon - some ex- 
cuse! But ... I was really hoping to see a lot of 
other folks who weren't there, including Bob 
"Lover Please" Segel (you're on notice that Ellis 
and I are going to come after you and haul you 
ourselves if you don't show up at the 30th on your 
own); Bob Fitzpatrick, Dave Butler, Bob 
Cate, Howie Means (you're also in trouble - I 
gave my Weejuns seven coats of Kiwi Midnight 
Brown and you didn't get to see them), Don 
"Moose" Stone, Cal Mackenzie, Stew Stef- 
fey, Tim "T.J." Moriarty, Jeff DeVeber, 
Spike Almy, Tom Brown, and any others that 
without malicious intent I may have left out. It 
really would have been good to see you guys and 
we ALL are looking forward to your attendance at 
the 30th! Rumor has it that Chad has already 
volunteered to head up that event. 

Our 25th Reunion is now history. Quite a trite 
saying, but "a good time was had by all." On 
purpose, the events were loosely planned so that 
we were free to socialize, tour the campus, tour 
Newburyport (which, for those who haven't seen it 
in a while, has changed a lot!) at our own pace, 
punctuated only by meal times, the Great Pie Race 
on Saturday morning, groundbreaking and dedica- 
tion of a new dormitory, the Saturday evening 
Lobster/Clambake, and of course, the infamous 
Saturday afternoon softball game. 

The class of '63 was proudly represented in the 
race by Bill Sloane, Carson Taylor and Susan 
Gummey. The softball game pitted the class of '63 
against the classes of '58, '48, and '47. The final 
score (8 to in favor of the Good Guys) belies the 

laughs enjoyed by both teams. Outstanding, ma- 
jor-league-quality plays were made by all including 
star-quality pitching by Farmer, top-notch catch- 
ing by Shafmaster, fabulous fielding by Petri, in- 
credible base-running by Witt, Taylor, Surrey and 
Ellis (in his thongs), and horrendous hitting by 
Barr, but the MVP-elect was unanimous: Andy 

Our 25th Reunion is now history. Those attend- 
ing (for the benefit of those who weren't able to) 
were: Cam, Carol and Matthew Barr; Dave and 
Nikki Caldwell (from the San Diego area, hands- 
down winners of the distance trophy); Peter Co- 
burn; Teddy and Joey Cook; Dave, Karen, and 
Justin Dent; Terry, Paula, Meg, and Forest Delano; 
Jeff, Nancy, and Molly Ellis; Forbes Farmer; Dave, 
Moni, Nathanial, and Kimberley Faxon (but with- 
out Larry Bird*); Bob and Cindi Fullerton; Frank, 
Susan, Sarah, and Topper Gummey; Randy La- 
genbach; Rusty and Mary Pat Navins; Mark Petri 
and Anne Bramhall; Jon Shafmaster and Carol 
Drueding; Bill, Lorna, and Lucia Sloane; Scott and 
Barbara Surrey; Bob and Carson Taylor and son, 
Willis; Andy and Marit Tully Thomas; Gary and 
Linda Whitford; and Stephen, Sara, Lauren, and 
Erica Witt. Peter Coburn, Forbes Farmer, and 
Bobby Taylor are in the process of mailing some 
assorted pictures taken that weekend to those who 
were not there. Thanks, Guys! (*Dr. Dave and 
Larry Bird, the Celtics star, did a Boston-area TV 
spot in which Dave played straight man for Lar- 
ry. B.F.) 

I'm missing 41 postcards - so send them next 
time. Here's the news: 

Peter Coburn enjoyed the reunion and, "like 
several other classmates, I have concluded that I 
should make a better effort to keep contact. Andy 
Thomas forced me to promise to find another ux 
(See, Mr. Navins, I did learn something in your 
class.) before the next reunion. Andy, do I have 
until our 50th? (Ux is Latin for wife . . . just 
learned that myself. Sorry, Buster. B.F.) 

Frank Gummey '63, Harry Barr '41, Cameron Barr '63 and Carol Barr at 
reunion picnic. 

Jay Cooke III '64 and daughter 
Sage, 10, at reunion. 

Don Connelly sent his apologies for missing 
reunion. "I spent that glorious weekend in Lake 
Ozark, Mo. I was on a business trip for Putnam 
and was forced to extend my stay when my re- 
placement had a slight stroke. I'm really upset that 
I missed it. Must I wait another 25 years to see 
everyone?" (We were too, and no, just four and a 
half. B.F.) 

J. Forbes Farmer writes that since reunion he 
has been "recruited to pitch for the Red Sox, ap- 
proached by Wilson Sporting Goods to advertise 
tennis rackets, and offered a job by Miller Lite as a 
beer tester. Can't decide which to do. It was great 
seeing everyone and meeting wives and children. 
Sorry I missed Teddy Cook. (Do you still have 
that stuffed duck?) Hope to see Scotty in Cam- 
bridge and Mark at his wedding (both soon, 1 
hope). Ph.D. work grinds slowly amidst a busy 
summer calendar which includes climbing Mt. Ka- 
tahdin in late August." (Are you 'Less Filling' or 
"Tastes Great"? B.F.) 

Bob Mann got married May 21, 1988, in La 
Jolla, Calif., and spent a month traveling around 
Mexico and the British West Indies. Now, he's 
back to real estate renovations in Fort Lauderdale. 
"Leslie, a California girl, has tempted me to move 
out to San Diego area. At 44 I thought I might 
begin to think about an heir to my ever-decreasing 
fortune! Hope all is well with you!" 

Peter Morrin was also sorry to miss reunion. 
He's busy in Louisville as director of the local art 
museum and chairman of the Mayor's Committee 
on Public Art. His 1 1-year-old son is active in 
Little League and his 18-month-old daughter, "in 
basic house destruction. Send addresses and I'll 

"Great reunion!" wrote Mark Petri. "Wonder- 
ful to see everyone; let's keep the connection now. 
I have started my own business (remodeling, reno- 
vations, additions) - Mark Remodeling/Building. I 
am currently rehabbing an 1800 building from the 
ground up, in and out. If any GDA people or 
friends need work done from Boston to Cape Cod, 
please call me in Carver (508/866-3095)." 

Bill Sloane says the most humorous remark he 
heard at reunion was from Frank Gummey. 
"When I told him that I was embarrassed that his 
wife had beaten me in the Saturday morning road 
race, he replied: 'She beats me every morning too.' 
Chad Smith expressed great disappointment not 
to have been able to attend, but has firmly prom- 
ised to rally for the 30th. I just wanted to go public 

on this in order to hold him to it." (Gummey and 
Gummey may turn out to be the comedy team of 
the year as Susan came out with the perceptive 
observation: "Have you ever noticed how fathers 
can watch their young children without even turn- 
ing their heads?!" B.F.) 

Stew Steffey lives in Philadelphia with his wife 
and four children, and works for CIGNA Corp., 
heading their international operations. Travel and 
family keep him busy, but he still manages to play 
right wing for the local hockey team and coach his 
sons as well. He regretfully missed reunion, but 
hopes to make the next one. 

Richard Stockton is assistant professor of 
physiology and biophysics at the State University 
of New York's Buffalo School of Medicine. "I live 
much of the year on a farm across the border in 
Canada, and am very active in a community asso- 
ciation in Buffalo which is involved in low income 
housing and community development problems. I 
also find a little time for tennis, sailing and X-C 
skiing as well as being a very active naturalist/envi- 

Steve Witt says the 25th was "far better than I 
had any reason to believe it would be. 1 thoroughly 
enjoyed myself (as did my family) and regretted not 
having had more time to spend with all of you 
(but, Bob and Jeff, our train ride was also enjoya- 
ble). Having been to my college reunion (at which I 
was far and away the youngest there), I'm pleased 
to say that we 'Guvvies' have matured better and 
aged less than our counterparts. I just hope that 
Steve Hughes will come to our next celebration." 
(Agreed! B.F.) 

Our 25th Reunion is now history. But . . . the 
30th IS COMING! Thanks again for the cards and 
letters; keep up the good work. I'll print what you 
write - editing costs extra! 


John Mercer, Secretary 


June 16, 17, 18 

Our reunion list is building. In addition to my- 
self, classmates who plan to be on campus in June 
include Ralph Johnson, Larry Henchy, Steve 
Hobbs, Chris Olney, Howard Foss, Paul 
Freedberg and Bob Canterbury. 


'68ers Carl Bernsten, David Westcott and John Wannop. 

Thomas Maier has been happily married for 10 
years, with three children: Ryan, 7; Sean 6, and 
Shannon 3. He has been at Chadwick School in 
Palos Verdes, Calif, for 16 years and runs many 
types of sports camps in the summers. 


Barry Sullwan, Secretary 

Don Bates reports the recent arrival on Cape 
Cod of a second daughter, Emily. He also reports 
that he continues to coach high school cross-coun- 
try, had an undefeated (7-0) season, and was voted 
coach of the year. In addition, he recently received 
the Johnny Kelley Award from the Cape Cod 
Athletic Club for service to running, and the Citi- 
zen Award from the Harwich Police Association 
for his work in promoting their race. Unlike the 
rest of us, Don is happy to see age 40 because it 
means a new age division in running. Don says he 
would like to return to GDA for the Spring Pie 
Race and would like to hear from other classmates, 
like Tom Walker and Bob Vaughan. Fortunately, 
Don doesn't suggest that we try to keep up with 
him around the track. 

Tom Hildreth reports that he remains holed 
up in Carabassett, Maine, with lady friend, three- 
kids and a pick-up truck. Tom is operating his own 
marketing-consulting firm, specializing in the turn- 
around of failing condominium complexes in New 
England. His primary client is a 119-room luxury 
hotel in Carabassett Valley that is in receivership. 
Tom also is busy culling out $10,000 donors for the 
capital fund in northern Maine, and he reports his 
happiness at hearing that Dave Holmes is alive and 

Roy Hope is still enjoying life in the Twin 
Cities and has recently completed his first year in 
the private practice of general surgery. Roy's note, 
which came in well before the Democratic Con- 
vention, indicates that he'd be willing to debate 
with Governor Dukakis about the latter's health 
care policies. 

Tim Keeney recently was promoted to general 
counsel of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric 
Administration in Washington and continues to 
live in Alexandria. Tim is sorry to have missed the 


225th Anniversary celebration, but will doubtless 
welcome comments on this summer's ozone levels. 

Paul Kelliher is a partner in Coopers and 
Lybrand, the accounting firm in Springfield, 
Mass., and president of the Northampton Rotary 
Club. He and Joanne have two teen-aged children. 

Barry Sullivan continues to practice law at 
Jenner & Block in Chicago, where he is a member 
of the executive committee. He also is chairman of 
the American Bar Association Commission on 
AIDS. Desrjjte Mac Murphy's stern warnings as to 
the dire consequences which befall children who 
are exposed to the National League, Barry's family 
includes two devoted followers of the hapless 
Cubs, George and Lloyd, both students at the 
University of Chicago Lab School. 

O | Ben Beach, Secretary 

Step by step, Phil Finn is making his way 
northeast. After stints in Maryland and then New 
Jersey, Phil has now landed back in New England 
(Simsbury, Conn.). He left Montgomery Ward for 
U.S. Shoe, and is a senior planner for the 800-store 
Casual Corner chain. Phil and Jane have sons in 
second and fourth grades. 

Hugh Munro is busy in the building supply 
industry in southeastern Massachusetts. Hugh, 
who lives in Dartmouth, sails in his free time. 

John Fiaston, apparently an adherent to the 
Adolph-Rumford Reproduction Theory (start late 
and then work like mad to catch up to your class- 
mates), reports the birth of his second daughter in 
14 months. [Catherine was born to John and his 
wife Doris on May 7, Bradley Pugh's 15th birth- 
day. John is a computer consultant with Amoco in 

Eager to spend all his time on crime, Win Burt 
has left general practice to become a prosecutor for 
the district attorney's office for Hampshire and 
Franklin Counties. His office is in Northampton, 

Joe Schwarzer had the unusual honor of re- 
ceiving a second consecutive Fulbright Fellowship, 
so is spending another year in Turkey. Joe, who 
has just about finished his Ph.D. in art history, is 
working on an 1 1th century shipwreck that will be 
put on exhibit. His 13-year-old, Franklin, appren- 
ticed himself to a rug maker and has floated plans 
to enter the import business. 

Sidney Bird's daughter, Laurie, graduated from 
high school this spring!

The class of 1968 had its 20th Reunion in June, 
joining in the celebration of GDA's 225th Anni- 
versary. Two decades is a long time, and it was 
great to renew old friendships. 

What made this reunion special was meeting the 
families and "significant others" who came along. 
Children were very much in evidence. The entire 
Wannop family (John, Wendy, Melissa, Bob, Bri- 
an, and Jeffrey), invaded campus, staying at Eames 
where the rest of the class was quartered. Rick, 
Pat, and Evan Kaye-Schiess represented the 





Maine contingent of our class, along with John 
Sowles and Rob Lord. Dave Westcott brought 
his family east from Washington state, and Steve 
Cox came from California. Boots Brown (who is 
renovating a house in Boulder, Colo.) and Jon 
Williams (who lives in Denver) provided addi- 
tional western representation. 

It may be worth mentioning that our class also 
has a preponderance of attorneys: Bill Madden, 
Jim Rudolph, Wilson Sullivan, Marc Tuck- 
er, Jay Worthen, Bob Stewart and Josh Burns 
are all practicing lawyers. We felt well protected 
against any legal contingency . . . especially during 
the softball game against the class of 1973, which 
we gracefully conceded so as not to damage their 
youthful vigor. 

Others attending were Wayne Barbaro, Carl 
Bernsten, Paul Covey, Steve Murphy, Ted 
Nahil, Chris Page, Steve Parker, Bob Par- 
sons, Ross Raymond, Hale Smith, Art Vea- 
sey and yours truly. 

It was wonderful to see old friends, recall times at 
GDA, and be somewhat relieved that in most ways 
20 years had not changed us THAT much. We 
missed those who were unable to attend.

June 16, 17, 18 

As of press time, 100% of our responses to Reun- 
ion '89 have been positive. Planning to come June 
16-18 are Steve Lee, Jon Williams, Brian 
Pfeiffer and Peter Dorsey, who promises to be 
there "with bells on." 

Sheldon Sachs writes from Baldwinsville, 
N.Y., that he has just opened his fourth dental 
office. Upstate New York has not yet added fluo- 
ride to the water supply, and the dentists aren't in 
a hurry to change that. Shel has one daughter, 
Samantha, and in his spare time between dental 
appointments, plays golf and jogs 25 miles per 
week. He mentioned that Jim Bailey has moved 
to the Syracuse area and works as a professor of 
orthopedics, presumably at the University. Or is 
that just a fancy title for a bone-crusher? 

Nat Follansbee is still director of development 
at Loomis-Chaffee, where he and his wife and two 
• children live in a dormitory. Nat coached the var- 
sity tennis team to a 13-2 record, winning the 
Hotchkiss Tournament. Nat, please take a 
penmanship course at Loomis. I can't read your 

Doug Bradshaw writes from Raynham, Mass., 
(isn't there a dog track there?) that he has taken a 
leave of absence from his teaching career to be a 
photographer. He says he likes to take pictures of 
weddings, portraits, and dogs. He writes that he 
happened across Chip Dayton at a photographic 
seminar in Boston. 

Dave Francis was at Governor Dummer for the 
225th Celebration, and in charge of the sound 
system for all the events in the gymnasium. He also 
provides the sound system for the Newport Folk 
and Jazz festivals. We can all take pride in Dave's 
accomplishments because he got his training when 
he was manager of Joe Lilly's band. He has asked 
Ed Murphy to do light shows with him, but as yet 
they haven't had the opportunity to work 

Josh Miner birdied the eighth hole at Augusta 
National recently. He says that golf has given him 

a new outlook on life and he regrets not having 
taken the game up professionally. He and Peter 
Dorsey often get together for golf clinics: Peter is 
usually the patient. 

Peter Borneman has let it be known that he 
grew up in the same state as Dan Quayle, but 
didn't know him. Everybody else seems to know 
him personally. Where was Peter? 

Albie Nelthropp promises to return to the 
reunion next June. He has planned this around his 
guest appearance on Saturday Night Live, so he 
won't be able to stay for the mixer we have 
planned with Dana Hall. Jon Williams, however, 
has indicated he plans to arrive early so he can be 
there when the bus unloads. 

Andy Costello has offered a brand new Cadil- 
lac convertible to anyone who can guess his grade 
in Latin 2. (Hint: what reunion are we about to 

Tim Tenney writes that he is having too much 
fun to get married right now. Furthermore, he is 
still upset that he didn't win the Academy Prize. 

Please program yourselves to return for our 20th 
Reunion on June 16, 17 and 18. If enough of us 
come back, we will get a good dormitory assigned 
to our class. We are already planning a weekend 
beyond your wildest dreams, so reserve the dates 

Thanks for writing.

The flame burns a bit brighter now after hearing 
news from a number of you, and begins to shed 
light on the subject of "Where was the class of 70?" 
We were there! And we are here now! 

Ron Latham recounts his years since GDA. 
After Dartmouth, where he "majored in psycholo- 
gy with concentrations in sociology, education and 
lacrosse - probably too much attention to the lat- 
ter," he taught elementary school and tried bar- 
tending, short order cooking, estate care, carpen- 
try, homesteading, auctioneering and interior 
decorating. Then he and his best friend, Kay, 
whom he had dated since GDA, married, and he 
enrolled in the masters in library science program 
at Simmons College. For the past 10 years he has 
been an administrator in public libraries in Central 
Massachusetts, the last seven in Southbridge (near 
Sturbridge, on the Massachusetts/Connecticut 
line). After working on two "handyman specials" 
that dominated their spare time, Ron and Kay 
moved to a 50-year-old house that gives them "ev- 
ery other weekend off." They have two sons, 
Adam, 9, and Justin, 7, and Ron is on the board of 
directors of a local family counseling agency, the 
Literacy Volunteers of Southbridge, and the 
Southbridge Youth Soccer Association. He 
coaches Justin's soccer team, and keeps in shape 
swimming during his lunch hour at the YMCA 
and bicycling to work when he can. 

Michael O'Leary is enjoying San Francisco 
and "plans to spend one more year at the Universi- 
ty of California at San Francisco (UCSF) as a 
Robert Wood Johnson Scholar, then who knows?" 
He and Kathy love California but miss Boston and 
the East. Mike looks forward to seeing folks at the 
next reunion. 

George Wagner is an architect in private prac- 
tice in Boston, where he has bought a house in the 
South End. "After five years on the faculty of 
Rhode Island School of Design, I just finished my 
first year as assistant professor in the Department 
of Architecture at Harvard's Graduate School of

Rob Lord '68 and son Sam, 1 . 

Jed and Barbara Bradley have four children. 
They "returned several years ago from living a year 
in Asia and four years in Switzerland . . . joined 
the real world and now own a natural foods store 
and apartment buildings in Wolfeboro, N.H." Jeb 
invites anyone to come and visit and go swimming 
or skiing in "America's Oldest Resort." 

Jay James and his wife Barbara live in North 
Andover with their two children, John, 7, and 
Ben, l'/z. Jay continues to practice law in Law- 
rence, Mass. 

Bill Mitchell and his wife, Becca Snook, have 
been married 14 years and have two boys, Wil- 
liams, Jr. 8, and Gavin Robert, 7. Bill previously 
was a manufacturer's rep for Sony and Micron, 
and now works at Brooks in Mountainview, Calif. 
"Life is great," he writes. "Steve Cox '68 (my dorm 
proctor at Boynton House) also works here at 
Brooks. I have been in electronics 12 years; it's lots 
of fun." 

T.B. Nast was lead counsel in Seattle versus 
Mesiani 110 Wn 2d 454, (5/12/88) which found 
DWI (driving while under the influence) road- 
blocks unconstitutional in Washington State. He 
also reports that he became instrument rated (for 
single engine land) on July 23, 1988. 

Johns and Joanne Congdon were married Oc- 
tober 4, 1987, and have designed and built a new 
home in Fayston, Vt. Joanne writes that "Johns

raising Registered Romney sheep." They are very 
happy and proud to see their "High Hope Farm" 

Mike and Marty Franchot, in Atlanta, are 
expecting their third child in November. Will is 
2V2 and Elizabeth, 15 months. Mike is an advertis- 
ing and marketing manager for Corona Products 
Co., manufacturer of leather care products (like 
Lexol) and animal health care products, among 
other things. Mike and Marty are loving the child- 
rearing years; they just bought another house after 
renovating their first. This summer they vaca- 
tioned with family at Myrtle Beach. Mike is very 
interested in hearing classmates' views on our years 
at GDA and the challenges posed for most of us in 
reconciling Vietnam war protests and the rejection 
of traditional values with our own needs at that 
time to grow up, leave adolescence and develop 
our own values. He feels it was quite a tumultuous 
time for our generation. 

Jim Furgal and his wife Gail, a freelance illus- 
trator, have two boys, David, 9, and Scott, 6V2. 
Jim graduated from Syracuse in 1974 with a major 
in economics, and got his MBA at Babson. He is 
now president of Camillus Cutlery Co. in Camil- 

Jack Cutler has been keeping me posted about 
his and Jeff Brown's continuing challenge: to walk 
(although not all at one time), the entire length of 
the Appalachian Trail. "Last spring we did about 
75 miles in Tennessee. We are also working on 


'climbing' the highest point in all 50 states." More 
recently, they "rendezvoused (yes, this is the cor- 
rect spelling) in St. Paul, Minn., for an extended 
weekend trip and we reached the highest points in 
Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota and Iowa." Jack 
is still living in Little Compton, R.I., but maintains 
an apartment in Chelmsford, Mass. He works for 
Digital as a consultant on pension fund matters. In 
his spare time, he is chairman of a local environ- 
mental group battling a marina development in 
Little Compton. 

Jeff Brown is making plans for the summer of 
'89 "to come north for the 15th college reunion at 
Brown and 10th reunion at B.U. Law School. I 
hope to get in a little of the Appalachian Trail in 
Maine as well. Did manage to climb Mount Rain- 
ier while in Washington State this summer." 

Jack Cutler sent me a clipping from the Boston 
Herald last spring entitled "Henry Eaton sees rock 
and TV news as similar." We're seeking permission 
to reprint it in the next Archon. Stay tuned. 

On February 16, 1988, Gill Jonas Imber was 
born to Jonathan Imber and his wife Mira. He is 
their first child and they are loving every moment. 
Jonathan continues to work as video tape editor 
for ABC News out of Los Angeles. His last out of 
town assignment before the baby arrived was the 
Super Bowl in San Diego. He spent the second half 
beside the Denver bench, and can't believe how 
hard those guys hit each other. 

Sorry that these notes were not submitted in 
time for the celebration issue for the 225th. I kept 
waiting to see if more news would come in. It 
didn't. In the meantime, many of you wrote and 
shared experiences. It would be fun, I think, to 
compile a collection of "poignant memories" for 
the next Archon. (Some of us have done it for this 
one and it is both fun and interesting). Keep writ- 
ing and please give me a call if you find yourself 
traveling to Southern California. 

Brad Bloom, 73 Lodgeways, Wellesley, MA 
02181, writes that he has been married for 1 1 years 
now and father to three children: Jessica, 3; Eric, 2; 
and Ross, born January 18,1988. Brad is a general 
partner of Berkshire Partners, a private investment 
firm specializing in leveraged buyouts. He has been 
in the acquisitions business for 10 years. When he 
can find the time, Brad and his wife enjoy skiing, 
golf, and swimming. In recent years, for example, 
he has been able to play golf with Andrew Nel- 
son and Peter Alfond. 

Barry Burlington resigned his development 
position at the Museum of Science and has become 
director of capital campaign at the Mt. Auburn 
Hospital. Barry has been involved in non-profit 
development since his position as director of devel- 
opment at GDA several years ago. He and his wife, 
Gillian, live in West Roxbury (Gillian is director of 
admissions at Pine Manor College). They have 
been remodeling their home and enjoy sailing, 
wind surfing and cross country skiing. Burls does a 
good job, as usual, in keeping up with his GDA 

The grapevine has it that John and Lelande 
Keeshan dayman have just added a member to 
the crew of the Shiras. Young Jack arrived in April 
and is presently getting his sea legs under Bligh's 
directions. Jack registered some protest when asked 
to take down the chute in some heavy air off 
Marblehead. Clay, always a man of unrelenting 
standards, would not hear of any complaints, and 
has sentenced young Jack to polishing the brass 
when off-watch. Donations for the "Save Jack from 
the Fate of the Vicious Sea Dog Fund" may be 
mailed to me in Ojai, Calif. 

Russ Ethridge, 4220 Lynn Point, Raleigh, 
N.C., enclosed a picture of the family unit. Russ 
and Debra sport young William Logan for the 
shot. ("Eats like a pig and sleeps through the 
night.") Debra is presently working at a fellowship 
at Wayne State University in "high risk" obstetrics 
while Russ practices law in Raleigh for "all corpora- 
tions I used to hate ..." Russ has been flying back 
and forth to Detroit on weekends to keep their 
commuter marriage intact. Russ hopes to visit 
GDA in the near future, and in the meantime, 
laments the fact that he's not getting enough sail- 
ing in. 

Stuart Dunn, 9835 Pebble Weigh Court, Burke, 
VA 22015, is living the happy family life with 
"wife, two children and a dog." Stu works for the 
Center for Naval Analyses doing operations re- 
search work for the Navy. Stu is able to travel a lot 
to various military facilities. When he can find the 
time, he works on his own business ventures. 

Steven Dunn, 9307 Holden Lane, Bratenahl, 
OH 44108, lives in Cleveland with his wife Katie 
and son Andy. They will probably continue to live 
in Cleveland until next Christmas when Katie will 
graduate from Case Med School. Andy is a year 
and one-half and a real "wall-banger." Steve runs a 
consulting company for tax and security matters. 
Steve remembers a minor classic: "Remember 
when Mr. Boynton threw an ice ball breaking a 
window five minutes after Val had just banned 


them at the school meeting?" 

James Fleming, 21 Partridge Drive, Bethel, 
CT, 06801, is a proud father to two children, Lu- 
ciana, 5 and Katherine, 2. James and his Lucia 
have been living in Connecticut now for several 
years, although James' work as sales manager for 
Stolt-Nielsen, Inc. in Greenwich takes him on trips 
to various ports in South America. 

Rumors are that (Mike) Hoover the Groover 
has finally been taken by a savvy tigress from The 
Big Apple. Burlingham was present at the ceremo- 
nies to confirm the unprecedented event. Many 
have said, "It couldn't happen," ever since Groov- 
er was jilted by his assigned date at the 1969 Wal- 
nut Hill-GDA Glee Club Concert and Mixer. (A 
humiliation experienced by many as I remember 
. . . ) Despite taking the vow of "eternal celibacy" 
in the Commons II bathroom on that cold night of 
December 1969, Mike has joined the married 
throngs. (Editor's note: Indeed, Mike and Janet 
were married in December and are expecting their 
first child.) 

David Lampet, now president of Swix Sport 
(manufacturers/distributors of ski products), di- 
vides his time between his home in Beverly Farms 
and his wife's home in Oslo, Norway. David mar- 
ried Toril Forland; they are the happy parents of 
Henrick, age 1. 

Jed Lee, 5509 14th Avenue So., Minneapolis, 
MN 55417, is lead programmer-analyst for North- 
western National Life Insurance Co. His wife, Ann 
is a database analyst for the same company. Jed 
and Ann traveled to the People's Republic of 
China as delegates on a data processing exchange 
tour and took much-enjoyed side trips to Hong 
Kong and Japan. When vacationing, they visit the 
Bar Harbor area of Maine. Jed keeps a "good-sized 
garden" each summer, plays softball and sings in 

the church choir. Reflections of GDA bring Jed 
back to the Senior meeting in Eames followed by 
the early morning school meeting. He asks if we 
"remember the issues and the feelings?" 

Ted Northrup writes from Fayetteville, N. Y., 
that he is president of the Cambridge Filter Cor- 
poration, enjoys golf, tennis, and skiing, and has 
been married to Pat for nine years now. They have 
three girls: Christina, 7; Kimberly, 4; and Ashley, 
2. Ted travels all over the place on business, and 
sees Mike Fish and Peter Alfond on occasion. 
Ted's most memorable GDA-related story con- 
cerns the night that he and Billy Frost passed a 
pleasant evening in the slammer. Ted admits, "It 
was not humorous at the time but it is the most 

Eric Peters, Edgartown, Mass., married Eliza- 
beth Campbell in August of 1982, graduated from 
University of Denver College of Law in 1983, and 
was admitted to the Mass Bar in December 1983. 
Presently, he is an attorney with Montgomery, 
Meisner, and Peters in Edgartown. Peter and Eliza- 
beth are parents to Nathaniel, 3, and Molly, 6 
months. Peter practices martial arts in his spare 
time and sees Crickett Littlefield and Jim Page 
on occasion. 

Sam Tamposi and wife Sharon have three off- 
spring: Jessica Anne, 9; Kristen Mary, 7; and Sam- 
my III, 4. Sam remains active in the family real 
estate business and skis, windsurfs, and golfs in his 
spare time. (How many other 71'ers have taken up 
windsurfing, I wonder?) Sam asks: "Where's 
Scrubbs?" A good question. 

Tucker Withington, Spoon Hill, Old Sand- 
wich Road, Plymouth, MA 02360, is married to

continue to work on completing their own home 
(designed by Neil). Tucker's favorite memory: 
"Masterminding the Mickey Mouse on the Chapel 
clock, followed by Foobar waking Val at 3 a.m., to 
show it to him." OK FOO! The Mickey Mouse feat 
remains undefeated in Academy annals, despite 
unrelenting attempts by following classes. 

Ellis Withington, 280 Salem St., North An- 
dover, MA 01830, is president of Patriot Properites, 
Inc., in Salem. He sees Peter Phippen, Bud 
Pettoruto and Bob Cole on occasion. And in 
his own words, "No wife, no kids, no motor car. 
Primitive as can be." 

Jed Lee and his wife Ann are both in data 
processing in Minneapolis, he with Hemar Service 
Corp., which processes student loans. Dick 
Guenther is a dentist on East Washington Street 
in Chicago, now with his own business. He recent- 
ly bought out his partner. Peter Harris and wife 
Pierina, in Portage, Mich., have three daughters; 
Peter is in molecular biology research. 

Chuck Samaras was married on April 17 at the 
Transfiguration Greek Orthodox Church in Low- 
ell to Karen Woods, a special needs teacher for 
grades 3 to 6. They honeymooned in Paris and the 
Italian and French Rivieras, and have moved into 
a new house in West Andover with their Samoyed 
pup Zachary. Chuck is a dentist in Lowell, and on 
the staffs of St. John's Hospital and five nursing 
homes. He is also on the board of the Big Brother- 
Big Sister Organization of Greater Lowell and is 
organizer-chairman of an annual road race spon- 
sored by AHEPA (American Hellenic Education 
Progressive Association - Mike Dukakis is a mem- 
ber) which benefits Big Brother-Big Sister.

In addition to the players' families, the team was 
cheered on by classmates Larry Jones, Andy

Haselton, and Jim Beach and their families. 
Later in the day, most of this group joined in at a

attended by Carol Salloway, Mark Hoffman, 
and Doug Pope. 

Shortly before the reunion, I had a chance to 
speak with Dorcie Barry-Baez. She was very 
disappointed that she couldn't attend the June 
celebration, but she asked that I pass her regards 
on to classmates. She is still in the Army, but has 

bei n reassigned to Fort Stewart, (ia. (alter several 

iii Hawaii). She has recently remarried (Lou 

Storms), and her daughter Jennifer will be 10 years 
old tins fall. 

I also spoke with Walter Rivera after reunion, 
and found that he was unable to attend bei ause he 
has recently formed a new law partnership, Rivera 
&. Muniz, P.C. The firm is located in Manhattan 
and is part of a nationwide network of attorneys 
who are especially sensitive to the legal require- 
ments of the Hispanic citizenry. 

Thanks to everyone who took the time to fill in 
the Reunion Questionnaire. I will try to locate and 
send you addresses for classmates you mentioned 
in the "not seen in years, but would like to see" 
category. As for the rest of the class, please write, 
because I still need news for the next Arc/ton!

June 16, 17, 18 

Quite a few classmates are already planning to 
come to reunion in June. If your name isn't here, 
why not? So far we have Bourke Gorman, Pam 
McElroy, Larry Metcalf, Courtney Wang, 
Rob Spaulding, Peter Arnold, Ray Brooks, 
Dave Williams, Brandon Chase, and Law- 
rence Metcalfe. 

Doug Morse was married May 28 at the Algon- 
quin Club of Boston to Katherine Murray, origi- 
nally of Pocasset. They took a wedding trip 
through the Canadian Maritime provinces, and 
are living in Pasadena, Calif., where Doug has his 
own fine arts and antiques business. Katherine, 
who has her B.A. from Wheaton College and her 
M.B.A. from Northeastern, is vice-president and 
team leader at the Bank of California in Los An- 
geles. The newlyweds extend an invitation to the 
class of 74 to give a call if ever on the West Coast. 

Among their wedding guests was Mark 
Hughes, all the way from England; he rerouted 
the last leg of a business trip to attend. Mark has 
recently returned to the U.K. from Kenya, where 
he worked for Price Waterhouse. He is now with 
Glynwed Plastics International in Staffordshire as 
finance director. 

James Pramberg is assistant professor in pedi- 
atrics at Tulane. Most of his time is spent working 
in public health units (entitlement programs, fol- 
low-up care for children without insurance, etc.), 
in small private practice, and in a child sexual 
abuse unit. "Very draining emotionally and not 
too financially rewarding but it has its moments. I 
am also in contact with people involved with the 
homeless to attempt to coordinate health care for 
the kids. For fun, I bike around the city, go to the 
opera here and in Houston, cook and play bridge. 
Doing some research on a new vaccine for children

Well, the class of 77 proves to be alive and well. 
The summer of '88 has brought on a flurry of 
communication like never before. Here goes: 

Dana Davis is living in Newbury and has been 
working for the IRS for a year. 

Stephen Sapuppo sent "a long overdue hello." 
He's been living in Hollywood, Calif., for the past 
year, and striving to be a famous young actor.

sailing as possible this summer and have the sun 
tan to show for it. Am still single, so Vickie had 
better keep having those babies. Speaking of 
whom: Vickies, when are you coming to Boston 
for that lunch?" 

Meanwhile, Vickie Papaioanou Murphy and 
her husband John are busy running their deli/ca-

The great late class secretary, Tracie Ackerman- 
Fornaro, says she is "planning a mini reunion 
lunch with Carrie and Vicki. Anyone interested in 
joining us?" Tracie just celebrated her ninth year at

publishing as a major part of her life and instead is 
following the path she decided on when she was 
eight: archaeology. She is currently in the process 
of getting her M.A. in historical archaeology at 
Boston University. "If all goes well, I should have 
my degree and a job by the spring of 1990 - which 
seems like forever away.!" 

Mark Vorreuter says "hello" from Upstate

Bob Kruger writes from Fort Bragg, N.C., 
where he is still in the Army. His current duty is as 
a company commander in the 2nd Battalion, 
504th Parachute Regiment, 82nd Airborne Divi- 
sion. "We're the crazy guys who jump out of air- 
planes for a living. Hard to believe I've been doing 
this for more than seven years, but we manage to 
stay on the go." In 12 to 18 months, Bob may get a 
chance to be an ROTC instructor back in New 
England - who knows? "I still run a bit, but I 
definitely do not compete any more. Running until 
I drop just is not as much fun as it was when I was 
18. Maybe sanity is finally settling in." 

Joaquin Saenz just returned to Colombia last 
March after spending two years in Argentina with 
McDonald's, opening the first three stores in that 
country. While in Argentina, Joaquin got married

Well, our 10th Reunion is just around the corner 
and Andy Linn has dubbed these times, our 
times, the Glory Days. And glorious they will be 
when we all meet again next summer to catch up 
on the past decade. As you would expect, a reun- 
ion committee has been formed and is busily plan- 
ning for this momentous occasion. Your partici- 
pation is heartily encouraged and would be greatly 
appreciated. So please call with your ideas, ad- 
dresses of lost classmates, or just to say hello. 

So far 79 is ahead of the other classes in "yesses" 
for reunion in June, but 74 is catching up. Plan- 
ning to come already are: Wendy Bixby Cowie, 
Martha Blake, Andy Linn, Laura Roome, 
Lisa Law, Steve Sterman, Henry Rosen, Jeff 
Hatfield, Troy Dagres, Brad Richter, Wendy 
Silin McAvoy, Felicia Lynch Lowery, Gret- 
chen Roorbach and Rick Theriault! 

And now for the news . . . 

Wendy Bixby Cowie writes, "Peter and I 
moved to Andover in November of '87 and had a 

girl, (Catherine Adeli , i >n Man h 5, 1988. I'm 
lo' ing motherhood and working as a bookkeeper 
foi Peter ;ii New England Systems/Harris Clarke 
Systems in Waltham." 

Kathy Coffin Hourihan and husband Dan 
have their hands full now with two little Houri- 
hans. Son Jared was 2 years old in April and 
Lauren Kathe was born February 27, 1988. Kathy, 
C-Line has been keeping me up to date on all your 
doings - please call or drop a note when you get a 
free moment. 

Henry "H" Rosen (whom I see often at the 
phonathons) is "still toiling as a real estate asso- 
ciate for Fine and Amrogne, primarily in the area 
of commercial lending. I have moved to a condo in 
Salem and am leading a very nice yuppie life whu h 
still includes much hoop." 

Felicia Lynch Lowery and son Reilly have 
forsaken sunny Florida and are back in New Eng- 
land, planning to settle in the Newburyport area. 
I'm looking forward to seeing "Fish" in the very 
near future. 

While at the April phonathon I was finally able 
to catch up with Dave Smith. Smitty has left the 
high seas and taken on land lubber status in Ham- 
ilton. Although busy with his start-up welding 
company, Smitty manages to maintain a corre- 
spondence with Barbara Riggs in London and 
insists that she may attend reunion. 

Matthew Palais has just headed back to the 
Far East (Korea, Japan and China), where he will 
be doing import/export business. His trip is a fol- 
low-up to his junior year abroad when he was at 
Lewis & Clark College in Oregon. Matt did trans- 
lations for the Chinese teams at the Olympics in 
Los Angeles four years ago, and was hoping to be 
involved in some way in Korea. 

Richard Voelker is pursuing an acting career 
in New York City and working on two screen 
plays. He lives off Washington Square Park and 
would love to hear from anyone who comes to 
town. His phone number is 212/420-6006. "Hey 
Bruce, give me a buzz," he writes. 

That's all for this round; I apologize for the 

siaruty of news. Ik- assured that in the toming 
months, however, you will be deluged with prc- 
union tidbits and teasers.

Jeff Ogden '78 greets his brother Lee at Alumni Pie Race. 


Several members of our class were at commence- 
ment last June watching '88 siblings get their diplo-

year's Academy Prize winner; Heather Perkins 
was there cheering on brother Matt; and John 
and Ted Wise watched the youngest of the Wise- 
clan, Martha, graduate. 

Tired of long New England winters, Matt Tom- 
linson moved to Florida this summer and report- 
ed to the Dade County school system in mid-Au- 
gust. Matt will be teaching junior high English in 
Hialeah, a town not far from Miami. "Anybody 
who wants to visit Florida, especially during the 
winter, should look me up!" he says. 

Julie Duff has moved to Palo Alto, Calif., to 
get a master's degree in philosophy at Stanford. 
Steve Wall is also going back to school; he ended 
his four-year career with Proctor 6k Gamble this 
summer to pursue his M.B.A. at Carnegie-Mellon 

Ginger Bushell is also B-school bound. She 
quit her job with MITRE in June and spent six 
weeks bicycle touring England, Scotland and 
France. Ginger will be attending the Wharton 
School of the University of Pennsylvania. 

Charlie Atkinson writes: "Things at Kodak 
are about the same: they keep paying me good 
money and I stay with them." Kibby recently 
bought a horse farm in Conesus, N.Y., "a five- 
year-old contemporary house out in the boonies; 
30 acres of land with 15 acres of woods. It's a lot of 
work, but it will turn out great." Kibby added a 
few messages: "Hey, Mo . . . how are the Stones? 
Randy, what are you doing in California? Schwart- 
zy - I'm glad to see you haven't changed. Whatever 
happened to the Wises? Ted and John, wherever 
you are, hi; drop me a line. Ted, Tally, Terry and 
Espo - hey, guys." 

Gretchen Putnam celebrated a long-awaited 
event when she graduated from NYU this June. 
She's been working as a counselor for two years 
with Diet Center in Manhattan and will be manag- 
ing the mid-town center in September. "Mr. Abu - 
I'm still running." 

The television business has again sent Scott Ma- 
son packing. In June he left WXII-TV in Winston 
Salem, N.C., and joined WHIO-TV in Dayton, 
Ohio, as a general assignment reporter. 

Bernie Marvin and his wife, Marie, recently 
moved into a new home in South Berwick, Maine. 
They had an addition to their family with the 
birth of a second son, Donovan Spencer, who 
joins Corey. Bernie is a fireman in Portsmouth, 

Dave Callan and Steve Moheban are heading 
for Europe for several weeks this fall. They are 
planning to visit London and then head to Mu- 
nich, just in time for Oktoberfest. 

Douglas Leathern, S.Sgt. USAF, is still at Nel- 
lis AFB, Nev., but retrained into the operations 
field. Doug is working with an F-16 fighter squad- 
ron now and hopes to get overseas soon, as Las 
Vegas is getting expensive! 

Lots of wedding bells have been (and will contin- 
ue to be) ringing for the class of 1980. Helen 
Mackay-Smith married Thanassis Mazarakis in 
GDA's Moseley Chapel on May 21. Helen is an 
assistant to the Commissioner of Housing, NYC. 
Her husband, also a Princeton graduate, recently 
received his M.B.A. from Wharton School of the 


University of Pennsylvania. He is a management 
consultant with Booz Allen ck Co. in Manhattan. 
They live in Brooklyn. 

Sioux Falls, S.D., was the site of Dean Harri- 
son's June 1 1 wedding to Solveig Ruth Olsen. 
They live in West Hollywood, where Dean has 
been doggedly giving the movie business a go for 
about two years now. Good luck, Dean! 

Erica Baum is engaged to marry Rick Nye of 
Marblehead, a Babson graduate, in September '89. 
Erica is working in Boston University's Office of 
External Programs, which handles overseas pro- 
grams and study abroad, as well as the Wine Club. 
While at BU, she's also pursuing her master's de- 

Jared Squire, formerly a financial consultant 
for Shearson Lehman Hutton in Raleigh, N.C., is 
now studying the Japanese language at Cornell 
University eight hours a day. Although very in- 
tense, he hopes to be working in Japan next year. 

I am marrying Christopher Welch, a Boston trial 
lawyer, in the fall. We will be living in the city.

in Bermuda and now live in Peabody. 

Eric Adell and Patty Crocker were married 
August 6 in Moseley Chapel, with several class- 
mates in the wedding party. Michael Reilly was 
best man and Peter Starosta, Eric Jones and 
Robert Sudduth, groomsmen. After a wedding 
trip to Spain and Portugal, Eric and Patty are at 
home in Newburyport. Eric is vice-president of

Mark Miller and Diane Loiselle were married 
June 25 in Moseley Chapel. They met at the Uni- 
versity of Lowell, where Mark is doing research at 
the Center for the Enhancement of Productivity (it 
is concerned with factories of the future). The 
wedding was a family affair: brothers David '87

Linda 78, bridesmaid. Mark is the son of Doug 
'46, chairman of the Science Department, and Meg 

Andrew Frederick was married June 20 and is 
currently living in North Andover with his wife,

She spends a lot of time with her horse and the 
Cornell Equestrian Team. She went to Cancun on 
spring break - "It was great!" 

Rob Studley is working toward a double major 
in economics and finance as he starts his junior 
year at Babson College. 

Elysa Marden writes from Corfu, where she is 
on an archaeological excavation with Brown Uni- 
versity: "We're in the midst of a late Roman/early 
Byzantine hypocaust system (a furnace). It's too 
small to be a public bath, but it might be a villa. 
I'm a junior field assistant and thus responsible for 
the southern section of a trench. My loci have a lot

Karen Patton and Diana Stram worked this 
summer at the Whale's Tale restaurant at Hamp- 
ton Beach, and they sailed to Nantucket with Jo- 
hanna Boutin. There they ran into Karen Tuck- 
er '86 and went to the "Madekochanigan." I guess 
that it was one wild party. 

Amy Mack worked at The Mall restaurant in 
Newburyport. Dave Naumann was driving an ice 
cream truck for a while until the company went 
bankrupt. He then came out East from Texas and 
stayed at Amy's. They both visited Jerry Mon- 
trone in Wolfeboro, N.H., and had a great time 
water skiing and tubing. I also ran into Jerry a few 
times at B.C., where he was taking some courses. 

Lucy Armstrong is back from Taillories, 
France, where she was involved in a Tufts pro- 
gram. Lucy also mentioned that she saw Jeanne 
Smith '85 while she was in France. 

Andrew Rockwell worked again this summer 
at the Old Town Country Club in Newbury, and 
took a writing course at UNH. Jon Fosdick 
worked in Boston at a marketing consulting firm. 
The three of us spent many a day and night having 
a good time at Rocky's beach house in North 

Todd Crabtree painted for the College Pro

Colgate '88, which didn't make the job any easier! 

Dave Bonenko had the opportunity to study 
in Wales, England, this summer. He said he had a 
great time! 

Pam Chase was very busy working at two jobs 
this summer and she also took a literature class at 
Merrimack College. Pam took some time off at the 
end of the summer and drove across the country. 

Tim "Hoagie" Carmichael worked at North- 
western University doing landscaping. He also was 
a live-in babysitter and had a challenging time 
dealing with his boss's 7-year-old niece. Hoagie 
flew out East in August and stayed with Mr. Finn. 
I was able to catch up with him and we had a great 
time camping with Rocky and Mr. Finn in Hire- 
man Cabin in Lyme, N.H. 

I took a few chemistry courses at Boston College 
this summer. I would like to say that I had a great 
time but I don't want to lie so I won't. Most of my 
other days I worked at Lynch Pharmacy in Newbu- 
ryport and had fun with some of our classmates in 
the area. I passed through campus the other day 
and was surprised to see a huge hole in the ground 
in front of Cottage. I guess that it is going to be a 
dorm some day. Well, that's it for now. I hope 
everyone has a good fall! 


Meganne Murphy, Secretary 

Hi everyone! Thanks for helping me by sending 
your letters and cards. I recently saw Jed Mixter, 
who said he had a good time at the "GDA reunion 
at Oxford Plains Speedway for two hot nights of 
the Grateful Dead." He saw Carrie Walton, 
Damon Kinzie, Tica Barry, Meg Murphy, 
Airin Brown, Dan Morrison, Brendon 
O'Brien, Christina Dalessio and assorted un- 
dergrads and alumni. His painting party in June 
was a blast too! 

Also from the Exeter area, Erika Sayewich has 
been painting up to 40 hours a week. "It's been a 
lot of fun, but takes up plenty of time!" In addition 
to seeing Sting in August, Erika will be sailing up 
the Maine coast on a schooner as part of Colby 
orientation. Maybe on the way up she'll see 
Wooders (Dave Adams) at Cousins Island. 
Dave has been a construction worker this summer 
to save up for that great Vermont skiing. He's been 


having a great summer and hopes everyone else 
has too. 

Apparently, many of the class of '88 have been 
seeing concerts as part of their summer, because 
that's where I've seen most people. I would love to 
name everyone I saw at Crosby, Stills and Nash, 
but couldn't possibly fit it all in! I did see Jill 
Goldman, who says "summer after GDA has 
been great (even though I've been going to parties 
with people from Brooks!) Next week I'm seeing 
Inxs with Michelle Bolyea, Erin Saunders, and 
Katie Clifford. I bumped into Fish (Jeff 
Abrams) at Papa Gino's. I loved orientation at 
Ithaca; can't wait to go." 

Erin Saunders is having a good time working 
at Saunders Restaurant (no relation) and she is 
getting psyched to go to CU-Boulder to check up 
on Petica. Reena Manimalethu has met a lot of 
new people in Pennsylvania. But she can't decide 
what's worse, "being whipped by Mama Mia 1 1 
hours a day or my three-hour lecture/three-hour 
lab chemistry course this summer." That sounds 
worse than double physics Monday morning! 

Jenny Reynolds is working in a sporting goods 
store and jamming with friends in Boston. She is 
definitely pursuing her music and looking forward 
to B.U. in the fall. 

Now for the foreign news update. Martin La- 
croix has been working out a lot to make the St. 
Lawrence hockey team. On July 20, Martin 
"singed 'Valerie' by Steve Winwood in a pub in 
front of 300 people." Wow! And we thought the 
Music Guild was big stuff. Hugh Ogilvie is work- 
ing at "The Battleaxes" in Letchmore Heath as a 
member of the kitchen staff, 10 hours a day. He 
just started driving lessons (watch out!) and is 
going to Nottingham University in October. 

Dan Morison writes that he misses Pop and 
Gus. "I still don't have a motorcycle, but am work- 
ing on it. Mom likes to yell at me; I think it's 
because I haven't been working." Maybe! Luckily 
Dan found himself a job on Martha's Vineyard for 
the month of August. 

Other jobs I've heard about are quite varied. 
Christina Dalessio has been scooping ice cream 
and recently went to a jazz concert on Long Island 
with Regina Glanzberg. Regina has been a work- 
aholic; a babysitter, veterinary assistant and law- 
yer's assistant, Regina is a woman of many trades. 
She says that "Some of the girls in Pierce will 

remember my fish, H.C, I still have him he's doing 
In.' He managed to survive the trip home and 1 
plan to take him to school." Allan Smith !,:. 
been "selling lobsters to people that really don't 
like them" in Gloucester. Chris Zabriskie has 
hc-en working as a prole in a machine factory and 
moving houses (not the whole house . . .). Cabot 
Orton applied for a clerk's position in a bookstore, 
and ended up the buyer for the store. Cabot has 
spent his summer in his semi-private office looking 
over spread sheets. Better luck next year, Cabot! 

Heather Moore has been living in New Hamp- 
shire, working at Club Casino and "lovin' every 
minute of it. It's the greatest thing I've ever done." 
She's seen lots of GDA undergrads and alumni. 
Anne Cole has also been scooping . . . ice cream 
at Benson's. She says that "Not many people from 
GDA come to Benson's, except for an occasionally 
hockey bob." Anne is heading for the Adiron- 
dacks for two weeks in August, then off to Colgate 
from there. She says she enjoys her time in the 
mountains because it gives her a chance to get to 
know her relatives again. 

Liz Leary says that the weather has been too 
hot to show any of her horses, and those Byfield 
flies have been vicious. Hopefully the weather will 
cool down and Liz will have some wins to report in 
the fall. She says "hello to everyone and kill a fly 
for Liz!" Kara Moheban had a great time on the 
trip to France and Spain with Mr. Rowe. "The first 
night in Paris was certainly interesting. We got lost 
in the middle of the night and held our breaths 
until we were blue in the face from the tear gas in 
the Metro! After that I explored England with 
Alison Magee '89 for three weeks." 

Now from the lost but found file ... I saw Joe 
Daley, who went on to the Walnut Hill School for 
the Performing Arts. He played a part in the up- 
coming Kennedy TV shows, and is filming a video 

Reena Manimalethu '88 and her 
mother, Regina, at Commence' 


in Boston. Joe is going to Emerson College in the 
fall to pursue his theatre career. He says, "I missed 
you guys and I am not dead! Call me!" Stayton 
Gammon was in Maine recently and told Allan 
Smith he is having a great time in Texas and that 
"he and public school were made for each other." 
Will Farley has been a "summa painta" in New 
Hampshire and will be returning to Hampshire 
College in the fall. 

As for me, I have been working and visiting 
people most of the summer. I went to Nantucket 
and Martha's Vineyard with Kristina Von 
Trapp, where we found out that we are boring 
and that GDA life has made us sarcastic for the 
real world. (Thanks, Ingham Dorm.) I also went to 
visit Kristina and Damon Kinzie, with Nancy 
Hough. We attended a zucchini festival where we 
paid respects to King Zuke. I don't know, I guess 
it's just the Vermont thing to do! 

Keep in touch, everyone, and have a good start 
to your school year. If you are ever in five-college 
valley, stop by. Write me, c/o Hampshire College, 
Box 1377, Amherst, MA 01002, or stop by at 
Dakin House E3 1 1 . 

Former Faculty 

The Navins family celebrated three anniversaries 
this summer with a weekend at the Woodstock 
Inn, Woodstock, Vt. Former master Buster Nav- 
ins '31 and former librarian Fran were celebrating 
their 45th; Rusty '63 and Mary Pat, their 17th; and 
Peter '66 and Mary Colt, their 15th. All three 
couples were married in the month of June and 
they have a major outing every five years. In 1983 
they spent a week in Bermuda together. 

Dorothy and John Ogden, former faculty 
members, are retired in Tampa, Fla., and they had 
an impromptu GDA reunion in the spring. Guests 
were Buster and Fran Navins, and Phil Ogden '78 
and his wife Debbie, from Ossining, N.Y. "A great

number of lies were swapped, stories told and vivid 
memories evoked at this subtropic but superordi- 
nate gathering," writes John. The Ogden family 
also includes Mollie, daughter of Tinker and 
granddaughter of Wendy Evans. John Ogden came 
to Governor Dummer to teach English in 1963, 
and succeeded Tom Mercer as head of the English 
Department in 1967. He left in 1973 to be head- 
master at Brookwood School. Dorothy worked in 
the Development Office from 1972 to 1975, and 
then in the Admissions Office until she retired in 
1985 as assistant director. 

John and Dorothy Ogden, Fran and Buster Navins, Debbie and Phil Og- 
den '78, and Mollie, at Florida "Reunion." 

Frederic B. "Ted" Withington, a master at 
Governor Dummer Academy from 1947 to 1956, 
retired in June after 22 years as headmaster of 
Friends Academy in Locust Valley, New York. 
The alumni magazine, The Meeting House, devoted 
a good bit of their spring issue to photographs of 
"The Withington Years." 

Ted came to Governor Dummer upon gradua- 
tion from Harvard in 1947 - his college years hav- 
ing been interrupted by World War II. He was a 
pilot with the 15th Air Force in Italy from 1942 to 
1945, and returned home with the Distinguished 
Flying Cross, the Air Medal and the Purple Heart. 
At Governor Dummer, he taught math and 
coached track and football for nine years, first 
under coach Art Sager, and later as head coach 

He left in 1956 to become principal of the upper 
school at Sidwell Friends School, and he was head- 
master of Morgan Park Academy in Chicago be- 
fore going to Friends Academy in 1966. 

Under Ted's guidance, that school has grown 
from 440 students on 27 acres to 700 students on 
65 acres. The financial aid budget has increased 
from $17,293 for 44 students to $778,580 for 140 
students. Annual giving has increased from 
$42,000 to $400,000, and endowment, from 
$360,000 to $3.1 million. Ted instigated a lacrosse 
program in 1969 and an ice hockey program in 
1974, and additions to the facilities include the 
400-meter F.B. Withington all-weather track. His 
mentor Art Sager turned up for its dedication in 

Ted and his wife JoAnn are now looking forward 
to "a more private life enjoying daughters Sarah, 
Ann, and Sue, and grandchildren," and hopefully 
to a home of their own in Maine. 

A host of Withington relatives have also been 
involved with GDA, from Ted's great-grandfather, 
who was on the Board of Trustees about 1831-1838 
and 1846-1852, to present trustee Nathan Withing- 
ton '58, Ted's cousin. Ted's brother was class of
